A 32-year-old man is facing more than a decade behind bars after allegedly terrorizing four cab drivers with a gun on two separate nights.
Samir Sullivan of Mount Vernon has been charged with committing four armed carjackings on cabs in Mount Vernon and the Bronx, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman announced on Friday. The charges come following complaints from drivers in the early morning hours of Sunday, Nov. 25 and Thursday, Nov. 29.
Berman said that Sullivan was arrested on Tuesday, Dec. 4 and appeared in White Plains federal court. Sullivan has been charged with four counts of carjacking, which carry a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. No return court date has been announced.
“As alleged, four cab drivers in Mt. Vernon and the Bronx were doing their jobs transporting passengers when Samir Sullivan used a gun to take their cabs and, in three cases, their hard-earned money,” Berman said. “No driver should fear a gun being pointed at them when they simply pick up a passenger on the job.”
