Tu-Tu Worn By Passenger of Beaten Taxi Driver
AN "INNOCENT" taxi driver beaten by some of his six male passengers and left at the side of the road has prompted a police appeal.
One of the group was wearing a tu-tu skirt at the time.
"I would say it's clearly a premeditated attack on an innocent person trying to make a living as a taxi driver," said inspector Stuart Gibbons.
The 48-year-old driver from the Camborne area picked up the six men in their late teens to early 20s at Tesco Express in Falmouth town centre in the early hours of Sunday, October 28.
He got their fare upfront as they asked to be taken to St Austell with a drop-off at St Stephen.
Police said the taxi driver stopped on the side of the A3058 as the men became agitated.
He was then beaten and left at the side of the road.
Call police on 101 quoting GA/12/3008 with information about this crime.
