Cab Driver Assaulted in Hoboken New Jersey
A Hoboken cab driver was assaulted by an unknown individual as a result of what appears to be an attempt to stiff the driver out of $5. The cab driver has reported that he drove the individual to Marshall Drive in Hoboken and once they arrived, the individual got out the car and immediately started talking to women who was standing on the side of the road. When the cab driver got out his vehicle to approach the individual to seek the cab fare, the individual struck him in the face and took off running north towards Jackson Street. As a result of the punch, the cab driver suffered some minor swelling above his eye. Since the injuries are minor and would most likely be considered as what is known in the legal profession as “bodily injury” the individual will be charged with simple assault. Furthermore, the individual, if caught, may also be charged with the offense of robbery as a result of this altercation.
