Uber Driver Gets Assaulted With 2 Guns Pointed At Him While Attempting To Pick Up A Customer!
Scary video caught the moment when officials say a man identified as Michael Baker pointed a gun at a Lyft driver.
A video camera inside the Uber driver’s car was recording when another gun was put to the driver’s head.
“At the moment, I didn’t realize if they were real or not until after the situation when I went back and looked at the video,” stated the driver, who did not want be identified.
Law enforcement stated the incident happened when the driver went to pick up a passenger on Howard Avenue Friday night in Lancaster, PA.
“I think it was 100% set up because of the way it went down,” the driver stated.
The driver, who has been with Uber for about nine months, has had the camera inside his car since he started with the ride share company. He claims he uses the camera as a safety measure.
“It’s not a requirement,” he said. “It’s my personal belief if anything good should come out of this is that Uber and Lyft should provide you with a dash cam.”
He currently has no plans to quit his employment with Uber and stated that he shared the video to keep other ride-share drivers safe.
“There is no point of robbing a Lyft driver or Uber driver whatsoever,” he said. “We don’t carry cash.”
Michael Baker was arrested Saturday and faces charges of robbery and assault.
Police are still working on identifying the second suspect also seen in the video.
