CAROLINE COUNTY, Va. -- State police are asking for help identifying the man accused of attacking and carjacking the driver of a taxi late Friday night along Interstate 95 in Caroline County, Virginia.

Troopers were called to the reported carjacking along I-95 south in Caroline County just before 11:20 p.m. after the Victory Cab Inc driver said his passenger "suddenly attacked him" while he was driving.

When the driver pulled off to the shoulder of the interstate about a mile from Route 207, troopers said the driver was "attacked a second time, pulled from his vehicle and left on the side of the interstate."

The passenger drove off in the taxi headed south on I-95, according to troopers.

The 39-year-old cab driver from Churchville, Maryland, refused medical treatment, troopers said.

Officials said the stolen taxi was a white Dodge Grand Caravan with "Victory Cab Inc" on each side along with a Maryland license plate.

Monday, troopers said they had located the suspect and the car was returned to its owner.
