The San Francisco Police Department moments ago announced it has arrested the man it believes beat, stabbed, and robbed cabbie Balvinder Singh on Jan. 11, nearly killing the 53-year-old driver.
Police spokesman Lieutenant Lyn Tomioka said that "excellent witnesses" who aided Singh after the attack were the key factor in the arrest of 26-year-old Pittsburgh resident Bruce Griffin, but could not elaborate on how witness information led to Griffin.
Griffin was arrested at Post and Larkin streets at 1:40 this morning and charged with robbery and attempted homicide. He was on parole for robbing a cab driver in 2003. -
