Three Cabbies Assaulted in Dartford

Three taxi drivers have been assaulted in Dartford on one night.

The first was attacked after he picked up two men in Dartford Road at around 11:30pm on Monday 15th February. An argument over the price of the fare began and the two men are alleged to have assaulted the driver. He dropped them in the town centre but they then chased his taxi along Spital Street and Kent Road.

The second two taxi drivers were assaulted in the same incident at Dartford Railway Station at around midnight on the same night.

They were approached by two men who again had an argument about a fare. One victim was kicked around the head and body, which needed hospital treatment overnight. The other received facial cuts and bruises.

Police are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen the pair walking around the town centre or the railway station.

They are described as white, in their late teens to early twenties and between 5”8’ and 6”2’. They were both wearing blue jeans and black jackets with white trainers. One of the men was shorter and more stocky and he was carrying a blue plastic bag with items in it. The other was taller and slimmer and was described as being more aggressive.

They were seen on CCTV getting onto a number 96 bus.
