Taxi driver stabbed in front of shoppers in Humberstone Gate, Leicester city centre

Police have arrested an 18-year-old man on suspicion of GBH

A taxi driver was stabbed after dropping off a group of passengers in Leicester city centre this afternoon.

The driver, who is in his 60s, was attacked in Humberstone Gate, near the Sainsbury’s supermarket.

He suffered a stab wound, which Leicestershire Police said was not life-threatening.

A short time later, an 18-year-old man was arrested at the scene.

Several armed officers were among those who responded to the incident. Much of their focus appeared to be on the Vestry House block of flats opposite the supermarket.

The victim works for a taxi firm which is based in the city.

A spokesman for the company said the driver had picked up four passengers – two men and two women – in the Belgrave area of Leicester, and then taken them to the city centre.

The company spokesman, who asked Leicestershire Live not to name the firm, said: “He has been bandaged up and is going to be okay.

“He has high blood pressure and was also treated for shock.”

A Leicestershire Police spokesman said: “Shortly before 1.15 this afternoon, we received a report that a man in his 60s had been stabbed.

“Offices attended and subsequently an 18-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of GBH.

“The man’s injuries are not life-threatening or life-changing.”

The incident happened just hours after another knife crime in Leicester, in which a 16-year-old boy was found with a stab wound in a house off Saffron Lane.
