TWO men are being hunted over a brutal attack on a taxi driver at Dewsbury Railway Station last month.
The victim, 46, ended up in hospital after the men turned violent when they were refused a cab due to their aggressive behaviour.
A taxi dispatcher intervened and was also assaulted in the incident at around 10.25pm on September 21.
The cabbie sustained a large cut to his mouth and a swollen cheek while his colleague was left badly shaken.
It started after one of the suspects asked to be taken to the Wilton Estate in Batley but was refused for being aggressive.
CCTV images have now been released by British Transport Police as the hunt for the thugs continues.
PC Penny Halliwell wants to hear from anyone who recognises the men, who are believed to have walked away from the station after the attack.
She said: “One of the men approached the taxi rank asking to be taken to the Wilton Estate in Batley and shouted at a driver.
“When the driver refused to take him due to his aggressive behaviour the suspect punched him.
“The taxi dispatcher intervened and became involved with a second man, who punched him in the face and made offensive comments towards him.”
