At approx. 11:00 AM police were called to the Shopper’s Mall for an assault.  A cab driver in the parking lot reported that a male approached him in his cab and began an argument.  The suspect then pushed and punched the victim and spit on his car before leaving.  An independent witness who happened to be in the parking lot at the time corroborated the complaint to police. Officers attended to the residence of the suspect and arrested the 19-year-old male for assault.  The suspect told the arresting officer that the cab driver cut him off a week or two earlier and he “hates bad drivers”.  The accused will appear in court on October 3rd, charged with common assault.
