LOS ANGELES (CBSNEWS) – A Los Angeles Lyft driver says she was brutally attacked in what she calls a road rage incident-turned-robbery.
A witness caught the violence on cellphone video and shared it with CBS Los Angeles. It shows Tenicia Bennet being attacked at a gas station in the Miracle Mile neighborhood in Los Angeles.
“I can’t watch it, no. I can’t watch it — see myself being dragged across a gas station for no reason,” she said.
A full-time Lyft driver, Bennet says she had just dropped off a customer and stopped to get gas when two women jumped out of a car and started hurling insults, then punches, dragging her by her hair and threatening other customers who tried to intervene.
“I just would never have thought that I would experience something like that,” Bennet said.
