7 Suspects Allegedly Rob Lyft Driver Caught on Camera
COLUMBUS, Ohio — A Lyft driver got more than he expected when a group of passengers tried to take off in his vehicle.
Columbus Police are looking for seven robbery suspects in the Nov. 16 incident. Authorities said at 9:39 p.m., a Lyft driver picked up the suspects at Beatty Community Center.
The driver did not want his name published, but said he goes by “KC.” The driver explained during the ride he got an unexpected question from one of the young men he picked up, “this was the first time somebody ever asked me if I had concealed carry.”
“KC” explained after that question, he got a bad feeling about his passengers. The trip continued to N. Harris Avenue in west Columbus where he was going to drop the group off.
The driver said he got out of his SUV so his back seat passengers could get out. However, one passenger moves into the driver’s seat, “The driver’s door shuts and that’s when I knew I had a problem. And I look and I see a head in the driver’s seat,” said “KC.”
The Lyft driver said he hung onto the backseat and the SUV crashed into a parked car. The suspects ran away and “KC’s” vehicle suffered minor damage to the front bumper. The driver wasn’t hurt.
