A taxi driver has been robbed at knifepoint and bashed in
Sydney's inner west.
The 33-year-old was stopped near Wharf Crescent at Pyrmont
about 10pm last night when he was attacked by a man who
jumped out of a white van.
The taxi driver was threatened with a knife and robbed of
money in the attack, police said in a statement.
The driver followed the assailant in his taxi after the
incident, but lost the vehicle.
The male victim suffered facial injuries and was treated at
the scene by paramedics.
Detectives are looking for a man of Middle Eastern
appearance, aged in his 20s, with a short and stocky build
and wearing red shorts and a white T-shirt.
