Malaga Taxi Driver Assaulted After Refusing To Take Two Passengers Who Were Holding Drinks.

A TAXI driver was allegedly beaten up by two young men in the city of Malaga in Spain, on Saturday night (April 3), at around 11.42pm, when he refused to allow them into his cab while they were holding drinks.
Eyewitnesses to the attack called the police and the National Police quickly arrived and arrested the two alleged assailants, who apparently told the driver, “You are going to take us – with drinks or without drinks – or we will kill you,” while also issuing racial insults to the Nigerian man who has Spanish residency.
Their assault with words developed into a physical attack on the driver, who received kicks and punches to his body, as well as suffering an ear injury with the pair allegedly even hitting the man with a chair, while shouting, “We’re going to kill you” at him.
The driver’s colleague took the injured man to a nearby health clinic to receive attention to his injuries, from where an ambulance transferred him to the Malaga Clínico Hospital, where his injuries were treated without him needing to be admitted to the hospital, as reported by
