Two men have been charged with a number of offences after a taxi driver was allegedly attacked in Ebbsfleet on Saturday morning (March 18).
Clive James Vivian and Jamie Vivian were arrested after the alleged assault, which reportedly took place near Ebbsfleet railway station at 11.50am.
A Kent Police spokesman said: "Kent Police responded to reports a taxi driver was being threatened and assaulted by two passengers he had picked up in University Way, Dartford.
"The men allegedly prevented the taxi driver from stopping. The men eventually got out of the taxi at Ebbsfleet Railway station just before midday and were arrested a short while later."
Clive James Vivian, 32, of Cornwall Road, Dartford and Jamie Vivian, of Tyron Way in Sidcup have since been charged with making off without paying the taxi fare, possessing an offensive weapon (a bottle of ammonia) in a public place, criminal damage to a sun visor and racially aggravated assault.
Both men have been remanded in custody and are due to appear at Medway Magistrates Court today (March 20).
