SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Police have identified the cab driver stabbed Thursday night in Schenectady. Police say Derek Leach, 28, had just taken someone from Johnstown to Schenectady when he was stabbed by a woman.

It's unknown if the person Leach had just transported was the same person who stabbed him.

After being stabbed, Leach walked down Liberty Street toward the library seeking help. He was soon air-lifted to Albany Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition.

His cab was found two blocks away from library.

Police are still looking for the suspect.
