Man arrested over taxi driver assault

A COFFS Harbour man, 27, was arrested and charged earlier this morning over an assault on a taxi driver.

The alleged incident happened on Thursday, April 23 around 1am where a taxi driver was assaulted after picking up a passenger in Coffs Harbour.

Police appealed to the public last week releasing security vision of a man, who they said could help with their inquiries.

Today, a 27-year-old Coffs Harbour man was charged with assault.

He has been bailed to appear in Coffs Harbour Local Court on June 22.

Coffs Harbour police would like to thank all members of the public, who assisted in identifying the alleged assailant.
