A PH taxi driver from St Augustine was stabbed while plying his vehicle for hire from Port-of-Spain to Morvant on Sunday night.
The 39-year old man told police that around 9.05 pm, he picked up three male passengers who asked to be taken to Alexis Street, Morvant.
One man sat in the front passenger seat, while the other two sat in the rear.
The driver stated that on reaching their destination at Alexis Street, Morvant the passenger in the right rear seat announced a holdup and proceeded to stab him several times about the body.
The driver reached for his own knife and began striking in the direction of the suspects.
However, the suspect armed with the knife continued to stab the driver.
The men then exited the vehicle and removed the driver from his side and a struggle continued.
The suspects then ran away in opposite directions.
The driver was taken to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital by a resident of the area.
The driver suffered multiple stab wounds about the body, as well as to both eyes and ears.
Investigations are ongoing.
