Uber driver charged after stabbing Mich. passenger
The victim was stabbed in the chest, back and face in a parking lot after he and his wife sought a ride home after a party
BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A 23-year-old Uber driver has been charged after a 49-year-old passenger was stabbed in suburban Detroit.
Jacob Allemon was arraigned Sunday on an assault charge.
The victim was stabbed in the chest, back and face early Saturday in a Bloomfield Township parking lot after he and his wife sought a ride home after a party.
Police say the driver may have been angered after his window was tapped and told the couple to exit the car.
Officers found the men fighting in a Honda Civic. The victim was treated at a hospital and released.
Allemon faces a Dec. 27 probable cause hearing. Court records don't list a lawyer for him.
Uber spokeswoman Kayla Whaling says Allemon has been banned from the ride-sharing app. The company has offered to assist investigators.
