Taxi driver robbed of money bag and assaulted on Dundee taxi rank

Police Scotland is appealing for information after a taxi driver was the victim of an attempted robbery and assault in Dundee.

The 79-year-old male taxi driver picked up two men from the taxi rank in Lochee High Street at around 9.30 am on Tuesday 6 June, 2023. He was driving a yellow Nissan Leaf car.

He was thereafter assaulted and attempts were made to rob him of his moneybag.

The taxi driver was unhurt but extremely shocked by the incident.

Officers are keen to trace two men who got into the taxi. They then left on foot in an unknown direction empty-handed.

Police Constable Mark Reid of Downfield Police Station said: “We are appealing to anyone in the area who witnessed the incident or the two men fleeing the taxi to get in touch with us.

“I would ask motorists who were in the area at the time and have dash-cam to contact us; you may have captured something that can assist our investigation.

“Anyone with information should call Police Scotland on 101, quoting reference number 1117 of Tuesday, 6 June, 2023.”
