Uber driver stabbed in neck in suburban St. Louis
ST. ANN (AP) — An Uber driver in suburban St. Louis is hospitalized after being stabbed in the neck during a carjacking.
KMOV-TV reports that the crime happened Sunday afternoon in St. Ann. Police say a 47-year-old Uber driver was dropping off three passengers. After two got out, a 17-year-old remained inside the car and demanded that the driver get out.
Police say the suspect stabbed the driver when he refused to leave the car. The victim ran to a home and called 911.
A short time later, Bridgeton police spotted the stolen vehicle. The suspect was arrested after a brief pursuit. Charges have not yet been filed.
A spokesman for Uber called the attack "deeply troubling."
