Man arrested after Burnham-On-Sea taxi driver is assaulted in his cab

A man has been arrested after a Burnham-On-Sea taxi driver was beaten in an assault at the weekend.

Police were called just after 9.30pm on Saturday 7th March by members of the public reporting that a taxi driver had been assaulted by a passenger.

Police say he also had his taxi window smashed during the journey to Weston-super-Mare.

"Officers later arrested a man in Winterstoke Road, and a 26-year-old man from Weston has been charged with assault by beating and is due before magistrates on Monday 23rd March," police spokeswoman Jenny Bigwood told Burnham-On-Sea.com.

"Another man who was in the taxi at the time was not involved in the assault."
