hree thieves stole cabbie’s phone and cash, cops said on Saturday.

The men entered the cab at 4:10 a.m. on Sept. 29, and asked the 34-year-old driver to take them to St. Andrews Place and Herkimer Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, cops said.

Surveillance video shows one of the robbers leaning into the cab and socking the driver in the stomach before the muggers took off with his Samsung Galaxy 5 phone and $100.

The cabbie refused medical attention.

In an apparently unrelated attack Oct. 6, two men robbed a livery driver in The Bronx.

The 53-year-old driver picked up his passengers in Soundview and drove them to Foxhurst.

Before they got out of the car, one of them snatched the hack’s cell phone, according to police. When the driver tried to confront the thief, he brandished a knife, cops said. u
