Police have arrested a 23-year-old man for assaulting a cab driver early on Sunday morning in the 4300 block of Fremont Ave. “The fare was $10.25, I asked him for $10 and he got a little bit mad,” said cab driver Ali Rind. Police say the suspect punched Rind repeatedly while calling him “a derogatory name,” told him to “return to his own country” and proceeded to smash the cab’s windshield. The suspect was taken into custody inside his apartment.
