The New York Police Department has arrested two of five suspects wanted for beating a taxi driver to death in Queens over the weekend.
Two men were arrested overnight, according to The New York Post. The newspaper says they confirmed the arrests from police sources.
Austin Amos, 20, was previously announced as wanted in connection with the death of 52-year-old Kutin Gyimah, FOX 5 New York reported.
Gyimah was a married father of four young children from Ghana, lived with his family in the Bronx and was working at his job as a cab driver in Queens on Sunday morning when he let out a group of five passengers at approximately 6:30 a.m. near Beach 54 Street and Arverne Boulevard.

Instead of paying the cab fare, the group allegedly tried to rob Gyimah. Law enforcement sources told WNBC that surveillance footage shows Gyimah chasing after the group on foot, grabbing onto one of them attempting to flee.
The group then allegedly begins to beat the driver. One of them delivered a blow to Gyimah that sent him to the pavement and rendered him unable to get back up.
The beating was reportedly caught on surveillance video by the NYPD. So far, none of the five suspects have been arrested.
