West Midlands Police are appealing for help from B44 residents to identify a man who attacked a private hire driver.
At around 2am on Saturday 5 May, the 42-year-old victim picked up two young women on Priory Queensway in the city centre. Before he pulled away, the man in the CCTV got into the car.
The driver then took the two women to a house on Perry Wood Road in Great Barr. The man then asked the driver to take him to Kingstanding.
At some point, there was a dispute about the fare and the man got out of the private hire taxi [sic], opened the driver’s door and proceeded to punch him in the face.
The driver then got out of the car in a bid to escape but fell over. His attacker then kicked him as he lay on the floor causing his wrist to break.
At TheB44, we think people who provide us with useful services should be able to work free from fear and intimidation.
If you can identify the suspect, please call DC Duncan on 101. Alternatively, people who do not want to speak with police officers directly can call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
