D.C. police seek suspect in stabbing death of taxi repair shop manager

District police on Thursday released a video of a possible suspect in the July stabbing death of a taxi repair shop manager who was killed during an apparent robbery.

The video shows a man approaching Gold Star Cab on Q Street SW on July 19 at 7:01 p.m. and then running in the opposite direction three minutes later.

D.C. police said Hayes Osei Dennis, 60, was killed about 7:02 p.m.

Dennis, who lived in Fort Washington, was pronounced dead at a ocal hospital.

The night of the attack, Dennis had been expected home for dinner to see off a visiting in-law who was headed back the next day to Ghana. He had told his wife that he “would be home soon” shortly before he was killed.

He had seven children between the ages of 4 and 20.

Britam Ghuman, the cab company owner, said in July that two employees were at the shop with Dennis and saw him get stabbed. A brother-in-law told The Post after the attack that the workers told him Dennis was stabbed in the back and neck after giving the man $20.

D.C. police are offering up to $25,000 to anyone providing information leading to an arrest and a conviction. Tipsters are urged to call 202-727-9099 or text the department at 5041.
