Stephen Small attacked and robbed the driver of the taxi he was in

They asked to be taken to Small ’s address on Hallchurch Road, Dudley but on arrival they refused to pay the full fare.

Stephen Small then launched an attack on the 44-year-old taxi driver, stole his PDA device, took money from his pocket, and even tried to set the taxi on fire.

A passer-by witnessed the assault and called police.

An investigation was launched, and CCTV identified Small as the prime suspect. He was subsequently arrested and charged with robbery.

He was sentenced last Tuesday (2 April) after being found guilty.
