A 16-year-old boy has pleaded guilty to attacking and robbing a taxi driver the day after he was released on bail from youth detention. The boy — who cannot be named for legal reasons — appeared via video link from Banskia Hill Youth Detention Centre on Friday morning facing a string of charges adding to an already-extensive criminal record. Yadwinder Singh Gill, 26, was attacked on November 5 by three people who robbed and stabbed him while working his job as a taxi driver and was controversially not provided ambulance transport to Perth for surgery after the attack. Mr Gill was driving a taxi called to Adam Road in South Bunbury, where three people — the 16-year-old, a 17-year-old, and a 35-year-old — had requested a trip. Mr Gill dropped them at the Bunbury Centrepoint carpark near Coles, when he noticed his wallet was missing. Mr Gill stepped out of the taxi and confronted the trio, who then physically assaulted him. The 16-year-old boy punched Mr Gill several times in the face, while the other lacerated Mr Gill with a knife. All three punched Mr Gill several times before fleeing on foot and dumping the knife in the nearby estuary. The three were arrested a short-time later after CCTV footage from the taxi identified the trio, and police located the discarded knife. The police also located Mr Gill’s stolen wallet and $195 cash. The 16-year-old boy pleaded guilty to one charge of aggravated robbery, and received four months and 15 days detention in Banskia Hill. The boy’s previous application for bail was rejected in court because he had been serving four months detention for a precious charge. The court also heard that the boy was a “prolific offender” with a criminal record totalling 12 pages. Bunbury Taxis is now wary of picking up clients and offering rides from the suburbs of Withers and Carey Park, and said the trio in this instance walked further down to Adam Road to get out of these no-pick-up zones. This is not the first instance of delivery services being cautious of certain suburbs, with companies such as Domino’s Bunbury also refusing to deliver to those suburbs. Mr Gill is still recovering at home from his injuries.
