Suspects attack and stab Uber driver in the chest. Police in Philadelphia are searching for a man who was caught on camera stabbing an Uber driver in the chest last month.
The Philadelphia Police Department said in a news release that the brutal attack occurred on the 3500 block of Joyce Street on February 15.
In the video, the driver - a 55-year-old man - is seen sitting in his car waiting for his next passenger while the suspect talks with a woman. The two appear to be in an argument before the woman starts walking to the passenger side to get in.
The man - described as a black man who is missing a front tooth - walks up to the driver's side of the car and motions for the driver to roll down his window.
In the next moment, the suspect repeatedly stabs the driver as the woman looks to try to help.
The driver attempts to crawl out the passenger door but manages to get out on his side and flee.
Police share that the driver managed to flee and went toward 3300 Kensington Avenue, where he was finally able to alert authorities.
'The victim was transported to Temple hospital where he was treated and listed in stable condition,' the police stated in the release.
'By the grace of God it didn't turn out worse than it absolutely could have. You see the strike points are right in the vital areas of the victim's body; chest, neck and head,' Captain Sekou Kinebrew explained to WPVI-TV.
Authorities are asking anyone with tips to dial 215.686.TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847.
