Police said the driver fought the woman while driving away and made it to Albert Street and 5th Avenue. The driver was reportedly bitten by the passenger at this point here and she pulled a knife on him, police said.

The driver was able to get hold of the knife, and the woman fled on foot.

The taxi driver was taken to hospital to have his injuries assessed. No items were taken, and police said they were unable to find the suspects.

Both are described as Indigenous and in their mid-thirties. The woman is described as five-foot-ten, heavy build, brown hair, wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt and white leggings.

The man is described as five-foot-nine and with a slim build.
