Toronto Police are on the hunt for two men who are wanted for stiffing a taxi cab operator and then severely beating him after he demanded payment.
Investigators say it happened Sunday at around 1:15a.m. The two men hailed a Beck Taxi in the College Street and Clinton Street area. When the men exited the cab in the Bloor Street West and Dundas Street West area they attempted to flee without paying.
The taxi cab operator followed the men and that is when they attacked the driver.
The pair was last seen running northbound on Dorval Road.
Suspect #1 is described as: white, 18-20, clean shaven with brown hair. He was wearing a dark, winter-style jacket and a baseball-style cap with the brim turned backwards.
Suspect #2 is described as: white, 18-20, clean shaven with brown hair. He was wearing a dark, winter-style jacket and a baseball style cap with the brim facing forwards.
Security camera images have been released of the two men.
