Stamford police are investigating the fatal stabbing of a taxi driver.
The victim, a driver for Stamford Taxi, was found dead near his car in a wooded Roxbury neighborhood early Wednesday morning.
Police were called to Doolittle Road around 9:00 a.m. Wednesday by a resident, who found the victim suffering from stab wounds.
Stamford Police Chief Jon Fontneau said their investigation is focusing on the possibility that the stabbing was the result of an earlier robbery.
“It appears there was a struggle and that this could be a potential robbery,” the law enforcement officer said.
This is the second homicide in Stamford this year. William “Buttons” James was shot to death at close range at the intersection of Pacific Street and Woodland Avenue on June 5. Twenty-year-old Andre Quinn Russell, of 83 Ludlow Street, was arrested and charged with James’ death.
Russell is being held on a $1 million bond.
