The Judicial Investigation Agency is investigating the beating of an Uber Eats driver in Heredia. A video showed that a man traveling by car assaulted him and threw his bicycle at him.
This happened on Saturday night. The 30-year-old victim is surnaed Chaves. He was in charge of making a delivery in Santa Pedro de Santa Bárbara de Heredia and when he didn’t show up the couple that ordered the food called him. He told them he had been beaten and asked if they could come to where he was, about two blocks from them. For security reasons they did not go themselves but called 9-1-1.
The man was transferred to the hospital in Heredia and his condition is unknown.
The video of the assault was published by a Facebook user and went viral. The events in the video are clear but the motive of the attack is still unknown.
Uber provided a statement, “We trust that the authorities will find those responsible for this terrible action and we are fully willing to collaborate with their investigations if required.”
