A TAXI driver has been left with deep cuts to his hand and head after being attacked with a knife during a robbery in inner-Sydney.

The 49-year-old driver picked up two men just after 3am (AEDT) yesterday in Surry Hills. The men asked to be taken to Bondi and then into the city.

On the way into the city the men told the driver to pull over in Stewart Street, Paddington, where they threatened him with a knife and demanded money.

They got away with money and some of the driver's personal belongings after a struggle, leaving him with a deep cut to his hand and his ear.

The driver raised the alarm at a nearby house and police and ambulance officers attended the scene.

The driver, from Concord, was taken to Sydney Hospital for treatment.

The men were last seen running along Moore Park Road.

They are described as being in their early twenties and around 175 to 180cm tall. They are both of Middle Eastern or Mediterranean appearance.

Anyone who was in the area of Stewart St and witnessed the robbery is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

I like Barry Beelzebub, from the UK.

He doesn't post every day, but when he does, his "social commentary" stuff is hilarious.

Thanks, bad boy, both these incidents were in my area of operation at that time. See above post.

A beauty, PQ, reminds me of the mad Irishman, Twenty Major. Also how about some classic Iowahawk, reporting on a sub-prime bogan story.
