A Somali taxi driver was assaulted by two Finnish men on Thursday at 4:30am at the Helsinki Railway Station, according to a Migrant Tales reporter. The man was taken to hospital by ambulance with injuries to the lower jaw and chin. The two attackers were later apprehended by the police.
The victim, who was second in a taxi line waiting for customers, was approached by two men who asked if they could be taken to an unknown destination.
“I said ok and waited for a couple of minutes for them to enter the car because they were chatting between themselves,” he said. “I got suspicious and decided against taking them because I feared that I could be robbed [or beaten up]. When I got out of the car and told them I’d refuse to take them anywhere, they attacked [me on the spot] and threatened to kill me.”
The taxi driver said that the two attackers called him the n-word and told him to go back to the country he came from.
The man was taken to hospital by ambulance. He was released the following day and is presently recovering at home.
