Alleged assault and robbery

Scunthorpe: Appeal for taxi driver to come forward

1 Feb 2018

We’re looking for a taxi driver to come forward who may have witnessed an alleged assault and robbery in Scunthorpe around 8pm on 18 January 2018.

A man was approached by another male on Teale Street who demanded cigarettes, money and his mobile phone.

When the victim refused, the suspect pushed him onto a taxi then the floor and allegedly assaulted him before stealing his phone. The man sustained injuries to his face and elbow.

The suspect has been described as white, in his 20s, and wearing grey tracksuit bottoms and a hooded top.

We’re asking the taxi driver, and anyone else who may have seen this, to contact us on 101 quoting log 453 of 18/01/18.
