A 30-year-old Guelph, Ont., man faces charges of assault with a weapon and transportation fraud following an incident in the city’s downtown Wednesday morning.
Police said a cab driver picked up a man in the city’s south end shortly after 3:30 am and he requested to go downtown.
During the trip, the man reportedly made bizarre comments before the vehicle came to a stop on Macdonell Street.
When the cab came to a stop on Macdonell Street, police said the driver was stabbed in the upper arm with a small knife.
The driver jumped out of the car, which rolled forward and collided with a bike rack, causing approximately $2,000.00 in damage.
They said the suspect was found a short distance away after fleeing on foot.
The victim sustained a small cut but did not seek medical treatment.
