Four teens attack Uber driver in Brooklyn while filming it, police seek suspects

The driver suffered a broken nose and a head wound from the attack.


Police are searching for four teens who beat and attempted to rob an Uber driver in Brooklyn, New York, earlier this month.

The victim of the attack told the New York Post that he was looking for the rider he was supposed to pick up on Alabama Street when he asked the nearby teens if they knew her.

After they responded no, he turned his head to continue to look for her and was then punched by one of the teens.

"I didn't see them, a surprise punch," the man recalled.

The victim noted that he saw one of the boys filming the incident when he exited his car to "fight back." He told the outlet that a fight broke out and he was hit with a scooter after being knocked to the ground.

“One was punching me and the other one had a gun,” the man added.

“He said, ‘Give me everything. give me all the money.’”

The beating ended when one of the neighbors exited their home to call the police. While the teens ran from the scene, one of them dropped the phone that was being used to record.

In a video obtained by the Post, two of the boys can be seen coming back to the scene attempting to recover the lost phone. They took off when they were told the police had already been called.

“The party’s over, the police are coming,” the victim told them.

The attackers didn't take anything in the incident and the victim noted, "I don’t know if they intended to rob me or if it was just to make a TikTok video."

Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), by visiting, downloading the NYPD Crime Stoppers mobile app, or texting 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
