Police: Livery cab driver hit with a hockey stick for the dead

NEW YORK – NEW York City police say a design taxi driver died after an angry pedestrian, and struck him on the head with a hockey stick and the driver flew off the car.

The police arrested Kohji Kosugi, of Manhattan, on a murder charge Sunday.

Police say the 68-year-old Toyota Camry livery cab driver was hit in the head by Kosugi late Saturday while the driver was stopped at a Manhattan intersection.

The driver returned to his car, drove a few blocks and hit a median.

He identified him as Randolph an Interpreter, of West New York, New Jersey. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

The police have no motive for the attack. Information about Kosugi’s lawyer was not immediately available.


This story has been corrected to show that the police now say that the name of the colors cab driver is Randolph an Interpreter, not Richard Interpreter. Also the livery cab driver was driving a Toyota Camry, not a Lincoln Town car.
