'I got punched in the face': Charges pending against Yellowknife cab driver for alleged assault: Yellowknife resident Angus Durrie says he was assaulted by a cab driver after the driver refused to take him to a cash machine so he could pay his fare.  © CBC Yellowknife resident Angus Durrie says he was assaulted by a cab driver after the driver refused to take him to a cash machine so he could pay his fare. 

A Yellowknife man says he was attacked by a taxi driver last week, after the cabbie refused to take him to a bank machine so he could pay his fare.

Angus Durrie, a local restaurant manager, says he flagged down an Aurora Taxi car after he got some late night food. He didn't realize when he got in that the cab didn't have a debit machine. At the end of his ride, Durrie says he told the driver that he didn't have cash, asking to be taken to an ATM.

When they were in front of his home, Durrie says he offered the driver his contact information to pay him later.

"I immediately called the RCMP, I was already dialling them when the driver actually smacked my phone out of my hand," Durrie told CBC.

He says RCMP came and called him an ambulance. He was taken to the hospital with two black eyes and was treated and released.

"I was really quite shaken up," he said.

Durrie posted a photo of his two black eyes on Facebook in an attempt to share what happened with Yellowknifers. He says taxis should be a safe way to get home.

Charges pending

Yellowknife RCMP confirm they responded to an assault complaint on July 24 shortly after midnight "where a taxi driver had allegedly assaulted another individual."

An RCMP spokesperson said emergency services were called and provided medical attention. They said a man was arrested and charges are pending.

Mohamad Ali, a board member of Aurora Taxi, said the company will not comment on an ongoing investigation.

In Yellowknife, the Livery Licence bylaw regulates the operation of taxis. It makes no mention of mandatory payment methods in taxis. It does specify that drivers must have a criminal records check with no criminal convictions.

A few days later, Durrie says his face is still sore. In an update on his Facebook page, he said he just wants his phone fixed and the ambulance bill to be paid for.

Man charged after sexually assaulting woman in downtown Halifax, masturbating in public: police .
A New Brunswick man is facing charges after masturbating in front of a woman in downtown Halifax and sexually assaulting her over her clothes. According to a Halifax Regional Police release, just before 3 a.m. Monday officers responded to a call of sexual assault in the 5400 block of Spring Garden Road.

When she turned around, the woman saw the man masturbating and he immediately lunged at her, sexually assaulting her over her clothing. The woman yelled, and the man ran away. Officers spoke to the complainant and searched the area for the suspect. Police found the 29-year-old New Brunswick man nearby, and he was arrested after a foot chase behind the Halifax provincial court on Spring Garden Road.
