Cab driver attacks man with hammer


A hammer-wielding cab driver and her passenger are both facing criminal charges after a weekend confrontation.

Police sources say a 23-year-old man was getting a ride in a woman's cab early Saturday morning, when he urinated in it. When Lisa Rusterucci dropped the man off at his Williamsburg Road apartment, she tried to charge him a cleanup fee.

According to sources, the passenger assaulted Rusterucci, and she then hit him with a hammer.

The passenger was issued a summons for simple assault. Rusterucci is facing an aggravated assault charge.
