Blade-wielders hijack Dublin taxi, hold driver hostage, dump him in nip in Meath

9

A pair of blade-wielding attackers hijacked a taxi in west Dublin before holding the driver hostage, making him strip down and throwing him out on the side of the road in Meath.

The cabbie was approached by the duo after dropping off another fare in the Dublin area just before 7am on Saturday morning.

He was jumped by the crazed pair who took over the vehicle after threatening the driver with the weapon.

The now in-control thieves forced the driver to take off everything except his boxers before dumping him on the side of the road just the far side of the Dublin/Meath border.

He managed to call the Gardai who collected him miles from where the frightening incident had started.

A Garda spokesman confirmed that investigations are still ongoing into the incident and urged anyone who may have seen anything or been travelling on that road at the time to come forward.
