A Shanghai resident riding home in a cab last night was beaten by a foreigner, leaving his brow ridge cracked and nose fractured, reported today.

The victim surnamed Zhang was attacked around 11pm when the taxi stopped at Jiangsu Road and Wuding Road W. for a red light, the report said. A foreign man laid his bicycle down in front of the taxi, walked over to where Zhang was sitting beside the cab driver and began to punch Zhang in a rage, the report quoted Zhang as saying.

The assault left Zhang with a fracture above one eyebrow, a broken nose and multiple bruises, according to the report.

Zhang said he had no idea why the foreigner beat him so badly because he did not know the man, who fled after the attack.

Police are investigating the case.
