Knife-wielding robbers hold up cabbie near park

Two knife-wielding thugs are on the lam after holding up a livery driver near sleepy Owls Head Park on Oct. 26 — and police say they have one’s menacing face captured on film.

According to cops, the perps jumped in the taxi on 68th Street near Owls Head Court at around midnight, and bolted with $370 in cash after holding a knife to the driver’s throat and demanding, “Give me everything or I’ll kill you!”

The suspects — one has tattoos on his left hand, the other a pock-marked face — also seized the driver’s wallet and cellphone, said authorities, who are asking witnesses or anyone with information to contact NYPD’s Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-8477.

All calls will be kept confidential.
