A $50 fare proved more trouble than it was worth for a Battambang taxi driver on Saturday.
Police said that the 44-year-old agreed to drive three men to Poipet only to be ordered to a quiet spot and accosted by the trio.
Stabbed in the back and leg, he was left on the roadside by the car thieves.
Police who came upon the man moments later sent him to hospital and say he has descriptions that should aid in their search for the suspects. DEUMAMPIL
