Shocking Video: Lyft driver brutally attacked, robbed by two women in Los Angeles


LOS ANGELES (KRON) – A Los Angeles-area Lyft driver is recovering after a vicious attack that she believes was out of road rage.

Tenicia Bennet says she had just dropped off a passenger when she stopped at a gas station to refuel.

This is when two women jumped out of a car and began brutally beating her.

In the end, the women took off with several of Bennett’s belongings.

Bennett is a single mother.

She says the duo robbed her of her wallet, phone, and rent money, all just a week before her toddler’s birthday.

The suspect’s car was marked with an Uber sticker, but the company says the vehicle is registered to a man who hasn’t driven for them in two months.

Los Angeles Police Department was able to trace the license plate on the car, and now have a lead in the case.

With her neck in a brace, Bennett explains she may never want to drive for ride-sharing service again.CNN contributed to this article.
