Two Men Wanted For Questioning After Taxi Driver Bashed In Southport

Police are searching for two men, after a taxi driver was bashed in Southport.

The cabbie dropped a passenger off at the corner of Botanical Drive and Musgrave Avenue just before midnight on Monday, June 2, but said the man fled without paying the fare.

The driver claimed he followed the man to Government Road, where he got out of his taxi and was confronted by a group of four men.

Two of the men allegedly attacked him, punching him in the face, before the group fled down Musgrave Avenue.

The 37-year-old driver had to be treated for facial wounds.

Investigators have now released images of two men wanted for questioning, and ask anyone who recognises them to please contact police.
