Taxi driver attacked after refusing to take fare holding machete

The 44-year-old victim was treated at hospital after the incident

A taxi driver was attacked with a machete yesterday evening after refusing to take a male passenger.

The 44-year-old victim was left injured after the incident outside Office World on Shaw Street at around 6.30pm.

It is believed that the driver was parked up when he was approached by a man and woman.

The man asked the driver if he could get into the taxi but he was refused.

He then swung, what is believed to have been, a machete towards the driver causing cuts to his hands.

The male and female then walked off in the direction of Everton Road.

A spokesperson for Merseyside Police said: "The driver attended at hospital for treatment for his injuries, which are not considered life threatening.

"The male is described as being white, around 35 years-of age, 5ft 11in tall, of slim build, with short light coloured hair. He was wearing a green short-sleeved T-shirt and back tracksuit bottoms.

"An investigation is underway and CCTV enquiries are being carried out in the local area."

Detective Constable Nick Glascott-Tull said: "I would appeal to anyone who was in the vicinity of Shaw Street or Islington last night who saw anything or saw anyone fitting the description of the male to contact us.

"I would also appeal to anyone who was in the area who may have dash-cam footage to get in touch as they may have information which is vital to our investigation."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook Merseyside Police CC .
