Passenger allegedly attacks Uber driver
Police said officers responded a short time before 2 a.m. Sunday to Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in San Francisco‘s Anza Vista neighborhood after the driver, who works for popular transportation network Uber, reported the assault while he sought medical assistance.
The victim told the officers that he picked up two males and a female passenger in downtown San Francisco, then headed near Polk and Sutter streets, where a male and a female passenger exited his vehicle after paying their portion of the fare.
The remaining passenger requested to be driven to the area of 18th Avenue and Clement Street in the city’s Central Richmond neighborhood.
Police said the driver’s suspect description matched the description of a person being detained by other police officers at 18th Avenue and Clement Street in a separate incident.
According to police, the victim in the other incident suffered a broken nose as well as other injuries to their face.
