At 5:04am, HRP officers responded to a robbery call at the intersection of Primrose Street and Victoria Road in Dartmouth as a passerby called in that a taxi driver was being assaulted. The taxi driver had stopped in this area with four male passengers who had been picked up in Halifax. One of the males initially attacked the victim, a 49 year old Halifax man, with a knife and then they all proceeded to physically assault him. The assailants rummaged through the vehicle and took some of the victim's personal effects and a sum of money and fled the area. The victim was transported to the QEII Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The attackers were described as three white men and one black man all approximately 17-18 years old. The matter is still under investigation.
