MANHATTAN — An Inwood man was nabbed for robbing a livery cab driver just blocks from his home on Thanksgiving, police said.

Anthony DeJesus, 23, faces a first-degree robbery charge for the alleged holdup on West 213th Street and 10th Avenue at 5 a.m.

Cops said that the suspect hailed the cab at West 207th Street and Broadway.  Blocks later, he whipped out a gun and demanded cash, police said.

Sources said that the suspect was arrested because of a tip sent to Crime Stoppers.
