Ride-Booking Service Driver Allegedly Struck Passenger With Baseball Bat

Police are seeking a ride-booking service driver who allegedly struck a passenger in the head with a baseball bat Saturday night in San Francisco after the two began arguing about the route the driver was taking.

At 10:39 p.m., officers responded to Richardson Avenue at Francisco Street for a report of an assault, according to police.

A 35-year-old man told officers he had been picked up by a driver via a ride-booking service.

Once inside the car, the man and the driver got into an argument over the route the driver was taking, police said.

The driver then told the man to get out of his car. After exiting, the man kicked the driver’s car, according to police.

The driver then retrieved a metal baseball bat and struck the man before fleeing. The victim suffered an injury to his head but he refused to go to a hospital, police said.

The suspect is described as a man between 40 and 45 years old who was driving a Toyota Prius, according to police.
