A livery cab driver who thought he was getting a tip got two guns in the face instead.
A devious duo robbed a Bronx cabbie at gunpoint Monday night, according to dramatic video released by police.
The unlucky livery driver picked up the passengers at Castle Hill Ave. and the Cross Bronx Expressway around 8:00 p.m., police said.
He did not get far before the two men pulled out guns, according to cops.
They stole $100, a Boost Mobile cellphone and the driver’s wallet, police said.
Cops were hunting for the two men late Tuesday night.
One was seen wearing a white hood and the other a black do-rag. They are believed to be between 20 to 25 years old, cops said.
The driver was not injured, according to cops.
