A man has been charged after a taxi driver was allegedly assaulted at Randwick earlier this month, NSW Police say.

Just before 6.30pm on Saturday 21 January 2017, a taxi driver parked and exited his vehicle on King Street, near a service station.

Police will allege the driver, a 32-year-old man, was involved in an argument with a group of three men.

The driver was allegedly assaulted, during which he fell to the ground and hit his head.

He was taken to the Prince of Wales Hospital for treatment.

Officers from Eastern Beaches Local Area Command attended and commenced an investigation.

Following inquiries, last Friday (27 January 2017), a 31-year-old man attended Maroubra Police Station where he was arrested and charged with reckless grievous bodily harm.

The man was granted conditional bail to appear at Waverley Local Court on Wednesday 22 February 2017.
