Cabbie Assaulted, Two Men Face Charges

Two men have been arrested after an assault on a Capital Taxi driver.

Early Sunday morning, the cabbie picked up two men at an Ennismore address.

While on route, the taxi driver was asked to stop at a second address and told the passengers there would be an additional charge for the stop.

The two refused to pay and got into an argument with the driver, who pulled over.

The passenger sitting behind the driver began to choke him while the passenger sitting in the front began to punch the driver in the head and torso.

Luckily, the driver was able to call his dispatcher for help while the two men ran from the cab.

Peterborough County OPP, the Central Region Canine Unit and members of the Emergency Response team found the two suspects in a wooded area nearby.

As a result of the investigation, 43-year-old Douglas I. Robinson of Bridgenorth and his brother 40-year-old John David Robinson of Peterborough have been charged for Assault.

Both men will appear in court on January 31.

The driver was treated for minor injuries at the scene by Peterborough County Ambulance.
