A cab driver got a lousy tip early Friday morning when he picked up three hooligans who had no intention of paying for their ride, cops said.
The cabbie picked up the creeps, two men and a woman in their 20s, at McAllister and Steiner streets around 2:30 a.m., police said.
One of the suspects punched the 54-year-old male cabbie in the face and took the cash out of his pocket, they said.
The crooks then jumped out of the cab and fled, police said.
The cabbie refused medical treatment for his bloody nose and no arrests have been made, cops said.
