Charlotte cab driver stabbed following altercation with customer

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A cab driver was stabbed at a southwest Charlotte hotel following an altercation with a customer last week, according to a police report.

Officers were called to an assault call at the InTown Suites on Pressley Road, where a Yellow Cab employee said he had been stabbed in the stomach.

"Officers followed a blood trail to room #221," police say, where they saw a silver pocket knife on the table. The suspect said he took the cab to the hotel and was going to his room to get money when the driver came up behind him and attempted to choke him.

The two reportedly tussled and the suspect stabbed the cab driver, the police report states.

A search warrant was issued for the room Sunday to search for evidence.
