Police looking for suspect who assaulted an Uber driver on 14th and 3rd
The attack reportedly happened at 3 a.m. on Aug. 28. Video that the NYPD released this week shows the suspect running east on 14th Street just past Third Avenue.
Police say that the man was trying to hail the Uber. When Gui Ping Han tried to explain that his car was not for hire, the suspect allegedly hit the driver in the face.
According to CBS 2 yesterday, the 45-year-old driver may have permanent blindness in his left eye.
Police did not release a description of the suspect...
