Third Late Night Robbery Attack in Bedworth

Another taxi driver has been robbed after he made a late night trip from Nuneaton to Bedworth.

In the latest attack, the driver picked up a fare in Attleborough Road, Nuneaton, and drove five men to Johnson Road in Bedworth.

A police spokeswoman said the five occupants paid the fare and got out at the destination.

But one of them reached through the window and grabbed the driver and he was banged on the car door. The driver was not seriously injured, although he had a red mark on his face.
