Malcolm May Arrested for Alleged Attack on Female Lyft Driver Caught on Camera

ID #17-004

A man suspected of allegedly attacking a female Lyft driver at a Santa Ana gas station has been arrested, according to officials.

Santa Ana police said 47-year-old Malcolm May was taken into custody and booked for alleged robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.

The violent attack was captured on surveillance images from the Arco gas station near the intersection of Main Street and MacArthur Boulevard on Friday.

The Lyft driver, who Eyewitness News has only identified as Terri, also managed to capture the vicious onslaught on her cellphone.

Terri said May started yelling at her after she parked crooked. Terri said she apologized and moved her car, but May continued to yell at her.

“I accidentally parked a little crooked and I didn’t realize it at the time that I was parked so crooked and this man came up to the front of my car, to the front hood and started yelling,” Terri recalled.

She said May got out of his vehicle and attacked her.

“I’ve never even seen this guy before,” Terri said. “It was really scary.”

Detectives said they received tips from the public.
