Uber Driver Stabs Rider Five Times For Disrespecting His Car
Police who responded to the scene found two men fighting in the back seat of a 2012 Honda Civic and discovered that one of the men, a 49-year-old Beverly Hills man had multiple stab wounds to his chest, back and face. According to a news release from the department, the driver, Berkley resident Jacob Matthew Allemon, was arrested at the scene.
Police said the victim and his wife had requested an Uber for a ride home from a holiday party, and Allemon accepted the request. When the victim tapped on the window to alert Allemon that they were entering the vehicle, according to police, he allegedly felt his vehicle was disrespected by the tapping.
Allemon drove about a mile before pulling into the shopping center parking lot and ordering the victim out of his vehicle. According to police, the victim asked if he and his wife could wait for another Uber vehicle due to the snowstorm.
Arrest record shows the rider and Uber driver fought fiercely until the driver stabbed him multiple times. The stabby driver has been charged with assault with the intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.
