Hope the victim is OK.
This has always been a very dangerous block with people hanging out all day and night by the liquor store and check cashing place.
If the perpetrator exited the medallion cab there might be a video record and a payment record if paid by credit or debit.

Defund the police! But remember that they may not be available when you need them. But I guess that’s ok.
