Taxi driver stabbed in Luton

A taxi driver has been stabbed three times during an attempted robbery in Luton.

The 41 year old cabbie picked up a passenger from Woodcock Road. The man then asked the driver to stop to pick up a friend.

When he pulled up a second man opened the driver's door, ordered him to hand over money and stabbed him three times.

The driver managed to close the door and the two attackers ran off empty handed.
