Kutin Gyimah, 52, died early Saturday when he chased down five passengers who tried to rob him at around 6:30 a.m. in the Rockaways, police said.

At least one or more of the passengers took a swing at the cabbie, police said, sending him flying to the pavement, where he hit his head. The group, including three men and two women, then fled.
