This from the overnight roundup:
EL MONTE – Two local men were arrested Saturday on suspicion after allegedly slitting a female taxi driver’s throat, robbing her and stealing her cab, authorities said.
David Herrera Siguenza, 19, and Carlos Carillo Ramirez, 25, both of El Monte, were booked on suspicion of attempted murder, carjacking and robbery, El Monte police Detective Ralph Batres said.
The incident occurred about 10:30 p.m. Friday when the woman, a 35-year-old El Monte resident, picked up the two men in the 11700 block of Emery Street in El Monte, Batres said.
After driving about a mile with Siguenza and Ramirez in the cab, Ramirez allegedly grabbed the woman by the neck from behind and slit her throat with a utility knife while Siguenza told him to stop, Batres said.
The wounded woman got out of the cab and the two men fled in it, the detective said. They also stole money from the woman.
