Sydney businessman allegedly steals taxi in bizarre footage

This is the bizarre moment a well-dressed businessman allegedly stole a cab after pulling off a door handle.

The 42-year-old man approached the parked taxi on Hunter Street in Sydney’s CBD last week before allegedly damaging the vehicle, police said.

He allegedly damaged the taxi’s door handle when he tripped trying to get inside.

This led to an argument between the man and the 52-year-old taxi driver, with the man seemingly running away.

He reportedly returned to the taxi 10 minutes later before getting in and threatening the driver who was trying to get him out.

The man then drove away before the car was abandoned in Woollahra the next morning.

It is claimed the taxi suffered “significant damage” after being taken by the man in footage provided to 7 News.

Pictures of the handsome stranger, wearing a navy suit and collared white shirt, were shared via police social media channels this week.
