A TAXI driver who said he was threatened at knife point by two women before they stole his car wants to know why they attacked him.
Zubair Hussain was going about his business as usual in his Royal Cars cab on Saturday, October 22 when he picked two women up from an address in Wood Farm at about 3am.
The father-of-one said they were going to Great Milton, before one of the women complained of feeling sick and asked him to pull over near Horspath.
The 34-year-old driver from Cowley said: "She got out and went around the back of the car.
"After a few minutes I heard a noise. She had something in her hand, but I didn't know what it was.
"She then punched me in the chest and started attacking me. I used my elbow to block her. I was shocked. I didn't know what was happening."
The woman then jumped into the driver's seat according to Mr Hussain, while the second female pulled out a kitchen knife and threatened him.
He added: "She said 'do not come near me' and had a kitchen knife. I said to them they could have my money, they could have my mobile phone, but leave the car.
"Then they said they would run me over. I ran away for about a mile and knocked on someone's door to get help."
Mr Hussain reported the incident and police have said they're investigating.
Officers said his taxi, a Toyota Prius, was found in Beech Road, Wheatley, at 4.52am crashed into a wall.
It is believed the women drove the car away towards Cuddesdon and Garsington.
No arrests have been made since the incident, but the force did release descriptions of the suspects.
One of the women is described as in her 20s, with brown shoulder length straight hair. She was wearing a hooded jacket and trousers.
The second female is described as in her 40s. She was described as wearing a jumper and jeans.
Mr Hussain said he was told by garage mechanics the damage was so bad, his insurers classed the car as a write off.
He added he had lost thousands of pounds in car damage, his takings for the night's work being stolen, and also through not being able to work for two weeks.
He added: "My first question would be: Why did you do this? There was no reason."
Anyone with information can call the police on 101.
Royal Cars managing director Niaz Mohammed said the firm was aware of the incident and was waiting for the outcome of the police investigation.
