The Crime of the Week this week involves a battery to a cab driver which occurred at approximately 7:45 pm
on February 20th. In the incident, a cab driver was parked in a parking lot at 9th and North Grand in Springfield. Suddenly, a black
male who stood approximately 5 foot 10 inches tall and had a slender build and long dreadlocks, approached the cab and broke a side window out of the cab. The subject then struck the cab driver several times in the face before the driver could get out of his parked vehicle.
