ANAHEIM (CBS) — Police were searching for a pair of suspects Monday in the stabbing of an Orange County taxi driver.

KNX 1070’s Karen Harlow reports the attack reportedly occurred during an overnight fare in Fullerton.

The cabbie picked up passengers at Harbor Drive and Commonwealth in the middle of the night, according to Fullerton Police Sgt. Andrew Goodrich.

“They got in the car, they said they wanted to go get some food or something, and the cab driver explained that he just could take them home, he wasn’t going to go through a drive-through,” said Goodrich.

After the passengers insisted the driver stop for food, an argument ensued and they struck the cab driver in the face, arm and chest, Goodrich said.

At that point, the driver realized he had been stabbed and drove away to flag down police.

He was treated at UCI Medical Center and is reportedly in stable condition.

The stabber is described as a male Hispanic, mid-20s, wearing a white jacket, short hair and a goatee. The second suspect is described as a male Hispanic in dark clothing, said Goodrich.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Fullerton police at (714) 738 – 6800.
