& # 39; No one else would do anything. & # 39;
& # 39; It's a shame – the taxi driver is trying to make ends meet, trying to make money and trying to make a living, and you have a random man who attacks you for no reason. & # 39;
Witnesses said the passenger was denied a ride home by at least two other taxis before he pulled out.
Police said there was no formal report, but urged witnesses to come forward.
