Uber driver beaten up ‘by passenger who thought he was Muslim’


An Uber taxi driver claims he was attacked by a passenger who thought he was a Muslim.

Samson Woldemichael, a Christian from North Carolina, says he was attacked and threatened while behind the wheel of his cab.

Woldemichael, who has lived in the US for eight years, said the passenger started to get increasingly aggressive while approaching the destination – his home, 10 miles away.

The alleged incident climaxed when the passenger started to rain down blows on Woldemichael’s head.
