ATLANTA — An Atlanta man says he was robbed at gunpoint and forced out of an Uber car on an interstate after booking a ride home from a nightclub.

According to the police report, when the Uber driver arrived just after four o’ clock Sunday morning, there was already a passenger in the front seat. The customer says it was, in fact, the Uber driver he booked because the driver said his name when he pulled up.

He told police he got in the backseat, the driver turned onto I-75 North, and that’s when the passenger in the front seat turned around and pulled a gun out.

The victim said the gunman took his phone, his wallet, keys, then kicked him out of the car. Police say someone called 911 and reported the victim walking on the side of I-75.

This is the second alleged Uber attack in the Atlanta area in a matter of days. Uber says it is investigating the allegations.
