Two men robbed a Bronx bodega, slashed a worker and then sliced a cab driver’s thumb off before cutting his passenger as they tried to escape early Sunday, police said.
The men held up the store at the corner of East 98th St. and Grand Concourse around 2 a.m. and slashed the hand of a 43-year-old employee.
They then ran out of the store and began struggling with a 47-year-old cab driver as they tried to steal his car, police said.
One of the blade-wielding men took several swipes at the driver during the fight and sliced off his thumb.
A 19-year-old woman who was riding in the back seat at the time was slashed on the back as the thieves forced her out of the vehicle, police said.
The men, 22 and 17, were apprehended a short time later and charges are pending. Their identities have not been released.
All of the victims were treated for their injuries at a local hospital and are expected to survive.
