According to police officials, a 25-year-old youth was assaulted and robbed while using a phone box near his home in Macgregor in Brisbane's south.

"The youth, whose identity was not disclosed, was punched in the head twice and his wallet stolen," a police official was quoted by news agency as saying.

In a separate incident, a taxi driver was attacked at about early this morning, Jan 22, after an argument broke out with two men in Carindale, in Brisbane's southeast.

The men punched the driver in the face several times and smashed the car's windscreen.
