ATTEMPTED KNIFEPOINT ROBBERY OF HARLOW PRIVATE HIRE DRIVER


An attempted robbery of a private hire driver, involving a knife, has taken place in Harlow, Essex. A friend of the driver told PHTM that the booking was made in person recently at Metro Cars office near Harlow train sta- tion. Unfortunately no contact details were taken but an image of the suspect was captured on the cab office CCTV. The passenger sat behind the driver and when they arrived at the destination address and the driver asked for his £6 fare, the passenger said that his bank card had just fallen under the driver’s seat. They both got out of the vehicle, the driver pulled the seat forward and asked him to look for himself. Instead of looking for the card, the attacker then tried to snatch the driver’s phone and attempted to stab him in the stomach.


MAN WANTED AFTER TAXI ‘PUNCHED AND KICKED’ IN BATH


Police are appeal- ing for a “bare- chested” man to come forward after a taxi was dam- aged in Bath. ITV News reports that Avon and Somerset Police say a man punched and kicked the taxi, damaging a wing mirror and the body- work. The taxi driver had two people in the vehicle and was driving along the road at the time. It happened between 11pm on 5 December and 12am on 6 December in Lower Bristol Road. Police have issued images of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the incident. “We’re keen to identify the man pictured, filmed on dashcam in the area at the time,” the force said in their appeal. “He’s a white man with dark hair, bare-chested and wearing dark-coloured trousers. “Anyone who recognises him, is asked to call 101 quoting ref: 5220273776.”

Fortunately, the driver reacted quickly to defend himself and blocked the knife with his hand. This thankfully prevented a serious injury, but the driver still has a fractured bone in his hand and the deep gash needed seven stitches. The attacker then ran off and the driver pressed his emergency alert button. The Metro office called him and they immedi- ately called the police. When the driver’s friend arrived at the scene he said the driver was badly shak- en and in complete shock. His car and clothes were covered in blood which was still pouring out of the deep wound. He


gave him a cloth to stop the bleeding and tried to calm him down until the police and ambulance arrived to treat his injuries. Police have contacted the driver to say they are still looking for the suspect.
