Edinburgh yobs batter taxi driver and speed off in his car leaving him injured in street

https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/news/6 ... stole-car/

AN EDINBURGH taxi driver was attacked by a group of yobs - who then sped off in his motor.

The 39-year-old had to stop his cab on West Pilton Grove after the gang of youths lobbed stones at the grey Mercedes.

When he got out he was attacked by around six or seven thugs, and one of them jumped into the car and drove off.

One of the youths is described as male, white, 16 or 17 years old, 5ft8in with a medium build and short light brown hair.

He was wearing a brown/yellow jacket and black tracksuit bottoms and spoke with a local accent.

A second is male, white, of medium build and curly, dark hair. He was wearing a black tracksuit.

The rest are described as male, 16 or 17 years old and wearing dark clothing.

The nicked taxi has the registration number WP14 ZRY.

As a result of the attack, the driver had bruising to his face and body.

Cops are now probing the incident and appealing to anyone who witnessed it or who has information.

Detective Constable Zaira Marker of Edinburgh Division’s CID said: “I would ask anyone who may have witnessed this robbery, or who may have any information which might assist us in this investigation to call us on the 101 number, giving the reference number 1841 of 29 December 2020.”

Grey 14-plate Merc, described simply as 'Merc E' in MoT database, so I'm assuming this is a E-class PH in Edinburgh.

Anyway, maybe a bad idea for the driver to get out, and we don't know the precise circumstances, but hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Nightmare scenario for the driver.

I suspect he would love to meet up sometime with the feral scum that attacked him.
