A TAXI driver had a knife held to his throat and a teenager was punched in the face by robbers who struck twice within minutes. Police are linking the attacks and have arrested two men who are being questioned at Halifax police station. In the first incident, a teenager travelling on the 571 bus from Southowram to Brighouse, was threatened by two men, one of whom was carrying a knife. They demanded his mobile phone before punching him in the face and fleeing from the bus in Brighouse town centre. Minutes later, two men jumped into a taxi, parked in a lay-by outside Regent House, Westgate, in Brighouse. They held a knife to the driver’s throat and stole his takings and two mobile phones.
