A was taken to Greenwich Hospital for treatment Friday night after he was attacked and beaten by a passenger, according to Port Chester police.
Police are still investigating the incident, in which no arrest has been made yet.
The driver, a 34-year-old Port Chester resident, picked up a man and woman on Weber Drive about 8:44 p.m. and was told to take the couple to a local diner. The cabbie stopped to pick up another party on Weber Drive, however, police said the second party could not fit in the cab.
The stop on Weber Drive, police said, angered the male passenger in the cab, who demanded he be taken to the diner immediately — because he was in a hurry. The driver, recognizing the passenger from a previous cab ride, then asked to be paid up front for the trip.
Police said the driver reported the passenger had owed him $2 from a ride the day before. The driver and the passenger got out of the cab, and the driver told police that he was punched in the face and knocked to the ground by the male passenger.
Police said the man and woman left Weber Drive and walked toward Grace Church Street. Village police officers searched the area but could not find the man involved in the attack.
