Uber Driver Attacked in San Francisco After Refusing Ride to 3 Women Over No Mask

(NBC) An Uber driver in San Francisco was attacked by three women Sunday after he refused them a ride for not wearing masks, according to police.

Subhakar Khadka, 32, picked up the three women at San Bruno Avenue and Felton Street, and one of the passengers was not wearing a mask, police said. The driver ended the ride a few minutes later at San Bruno and Silver avenues.

The driver’s surveillance video, widely circulated on social media, shows the three women then become verbally abusive toward the driver. One of the women reached over the driver’s seat and grabbed the driver’s cellphone, but Khadka was able to get it back, police said. The woman also yanked the driver’s mask off, breaking the bands that secure it, the video shows.

“I just truly wanted to get out of there as soon as possible. I wanted them to leave my car,” Khadka said.

When the women exited the car, one of them reached into an open window and sprayed what was believed to be pepper spray toward the driver, police said. The women then fled.
