SAN JOSE (KRON) — San Jose police are searching for an Uber driver accused of assaulting a man at an airport rental facility at Mineta San Jose International Airport last week, according to Sgt. Enrique Garcia.

The suspect parked, and that is when the victim confronted the driver over the fast driving. The victim then took pictures of the driver and the car, which had an Uber sticker on the window, Garcia said.
The suspect then got out of the car and grabbed the victim’s shirt, Garcia said. The driver then yelled and pushed the victim before he left with his fare who had arrived, according to Garcia.
