Huntingdon: Escaped Attacker Re-Arrested
A man who fled a court room minutes before he was found guilty of attacking a taxi driver has been re-arrested.
On Thursday 9th February Curtis King, 23, was found guilty in his absence of assaulting a taxi driver with his sister Tanisha, 24, at Huntingdon Crown Court.
The court heard the siblings, both of Cavendish Street, Peterborough, booked a taxi from Russell Street shortly after 1am on June 4th.
When the taxi driver arrived, five people tried to get into his cab, Cambridgeshire Police said. He explained he was only licensed to carry four people, but another taxi was waiting that could take them. Tanisha King shouted at the driver before punching him in the face, while Curtis King got into the other taxi. The victim got out of his taxi and was approached by Curtis King who had seen what had happened. He punched and kicked him before running away.
The pair denied causing actual bodily harm but were found guilty following a three-day trial.
Curtis King attended court on Thursday but didn't return for the jury's verdict after lunch and was found guilty in his absence.
He was re-arrested late on Saturday night and is due before Peterborough Magistrates Court today (Monday 13th February).
