Police are looking for two women who assaulted a livery cab driver during a fight over the fare, officials said Thursday.

Around 4:30 a.m. Monday, the driver picked up the women at 301 E. 193rd St. and they asked to be taken to East 118th Street, police said.

Near the Major Deegan Expressway and Fordham Road, the driver and the women got into an argument about the fare.

Police said one of the suspects punched the driver.

After he ordered the two out of his car, one of the suspects stabbed the driver in the arm with an unknown object, police said.

The 44-year-old driver refused medical help.
