Police hunting two men over taxi driver assault

Police have released images of two men wanted over the assault of a Gold Coast taxi driver last month.

The taxi driver was driving a man to the corner of Botanical Drive and Musgrave Avenue at Southport just before midnight on June 2.

When they arrived the passenger fled the taxi without paying his fare.


The driver followed the man onto Musgrave Ave before the man ran onto Government Road.

When the driver got out of his taxi he was confronted by four men, before two began punching him in the face.

The group then fled east along Musgrave Avenue while the driver received treatment for facial injuries.

Anyone who recognises either of the men is being urged to contact Police.
