Victim speaks out after bat and knife attack by NYC cab driver

A killer cabby didn’t utter a word as he viciously beat a would-be passenger with a baseball bat and then fatally stabbed the man’s pal on a Queens street, the survivor of the horrific attack told The Post yesterday.

“He didn’t say anything. He just got out of the car and started fighting,” victim Carlos Perez said from his bed at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, where he is recovering from a broken arm and stab wounds received in the predawn Saturday ambush in Woodside.

Cops yesterday were still hunting the driver who killed Perez’s longtime pal, deejay Isaac Martinez, 26, before speeding off, leaving the men bleeding on Roosevelt Avenue.

Perez and Martinez were both boozed up and had just left their local bar, El Perlita, bought more beer at a bodega and were making their way home around 5 a.m. when the bloody scene unfolded, according to law-enforcement sources and witnesses.

“I said, ‘Let’s go to my house.’ My friend wanted to get beer at the store. I told him I would get a cab,” Perez, 33, recounted.
