Passengers beat up taxi driver in Holbeach

Detectives searching for two men who attacked a taxi driver and stole his takings in Holbeach have released CCTV images of a possible suspect.

The two robbers were picked up in Whaplode around 6.15pm on March 9 - and asked to be dropped off on Park Lane in Holbeach.

When they got there one man held the driver in a neck lock whilst the other repeatedly punched him in the face. He was left wiith a black eye and a nosebleed. They then stole £70.

One of the men went into the Co-Op in Whaplode before getting into the taxi, where an image was caught on CCTV (pictured right).

DC Claire Sloan said: “This was a particularly nasty robbery. Thankfully the victim was not badly injured, but he was left very shaken by the incident.

Someone in the area will know who the man in these pictures is. This criminal does not deserve any loyalty, please call us and give us the name we need.”

Anyone with any information can call DC Claire Sloan on 0300 111 0300 ext 2642.
