A Jersey taxi driver has been left shaken, unable to sleep and says he can no longer work late night shifts after being threatened with a knife on Friday.
The 58-year-old taxi driver, who wants to remain anonymous, told ITV News he was chased with a knife in Gorey Village by a passenger who refused to pay his taxi fare.
He said: “I lost a whole night’s earnings, but I could have lost my life."
"Taxi drivers are on the front line just as much as police."
He added that this is the worst incident he has witnessed in his 35-year career.
The incident happened at just before midnight on Friday.
A 21-year-old was arrested for grave and criminal assault and has since been release on bail.
The police investigation continues.
