Maskless Woman Pepper Sprays, Coughs, Assaults Uber Driver After Asking Her To Wear Mask

An Uber driver in San Francisco was assaulted and coughed-upon by a woman riding with two other women after he refused them service for not wearing masks, in an attack the driver captured on video.

The driver, 32-year-old Subhakar Khadka, told CBS San Francisco that he believes he was attacked he is a South Asian immigrant.

“I never said anything bad to them, I never cursed, I was not raised that way. I don’t hit people, I am not raised that way, so they were not getting out of my car,” said Khadka.

As Lim wrote on Twitter, “Uber driver Subhakar told me he picked up 3 women in the Bayview yesterday & after asking one to wear a mask was subject to slurs, taunting & one grabbing his phone. He’s taking a few days off. SFPD is investigating.”

After the altercation, Subhakar held up his mask, showing it was unusable because one ear-strap was broken as the woman repeatedly cursed him and called him a “b*tch’ while her companions laughed and stared at their phones.

One woman sprayed pepper spray into the car after leaving the vehicle, according to police.

In a separate Tweet, Uber responded to the report saying the woman has now been banned by their company.
