Passenger Writes About Weekend’s Center City Taxicab Attack

Brian Goldman is a senior at Penn. Over the weekend, he was taking a cab to meet some friends when he was punched in the face through the cab’s open window. The taxi was stopped at a red light at 15th and Chestnut. Goldman and the cabbie got out of the car and both were attacked by a group of teenagers. Goldman ran and the cabbie hopped back in his car and sped off. Multiple teens were arrested. Brian Goldman has written about the experience for the Daily Pennsylvanian in his Monday column, the Gold Standard. [Daily Pennsylvanian]
