Do you know this man and woman?

York police want to talk to them after a taxi window was smashed.

Two people got into the white Toyota Avensis Streamline taxi on Cumberland Street at around 10.30pm on Saturday April 22 2017.

When they arrived at Wiggington Road, near to the A1237, the taxi driver pulled over as there appeared to be some confusion regarding the drop-off location.

The man then punched the rear passenger side window causing it to smash.

Both he and the woman made off from the taxi without paying the fare.

Can you identify them?
