Greenhithe teenager due in court over alleged Dartford taxi driver assault
A GREENHITHE teenager accused of assaulting a taxi driver in Dartford after refusing to pay his fare will face magistrates later this month.
Kent Police were called just after 5.40am on August 17 to reports a taxi driver had been assaulted suffering injuries to his face, hands, shins and knees.
He had taken a fare from Hythe Street to Summerhill Road and when he asked for payment, he was allegedly attacked. He required hospital treatment for a fractured eye socket.
A 17-year-old boy from Greenhithe, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was arrested and charged with common assault and bailed to appear at Dartford Magistrates’ Court on September 10.
