INFORMATION from an Uber cab provided critical information in a Landsdale assault involving one of the company’s drivers in June.
Senior Sergeant Simon Hazell said the victim picked the accused up from Perth CBD.
“The man said he would give the driver directions,” he said. “They were driving around for a while and the driver questioned the passenger after becoming suspicious. That’s when the man allegedly assaulted the driver.”
Officers contacted Uber with a warrant for details of the journey.
After obtaining a photo of the man, they presented a photo board to the victim who identified his attacker.
Police charged him with assault.
