Lower Nob Hill Ride-Hailing Passenger Assaults 2 Pedestrians

Two pedestrians were assaulted by a 28-year-old ride-hailing passenger in the Lower Nob Hill neighborhood early Sunday morning.

The incident took place at 12:31am at the intersection of Taylor and Sutter streets. 

Two people, a 57-year-old man and a 27-year-old man, were jaywalking in the area when the driver of a ride-share vehicle abruptly stopped to avoid hitting the two.

One of the pedestrians kicked the vehicle, and the 28-year-old passenger got out of the car and punched the 57-year-old man, who lost consciousness. The suspect also punched the 27-year-old man. 

The fight ended when a passerby intervened. The suspect fled on foot, but police later arrested him. 

The victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to the hospital. No details are currently available on the driver.
