Ridesharing driver carjacked in SF while picking up customer

A ridesharing driver and a passenger in the car were carjacked early Friday near Glen Park BART Station, police said.

The 67-year-old man and 23-year-old woman in the white Toyota Prius were ordered out of the car at Monterey Boulevard and Diamond Street around 3:22 a.m. by an unknown man, police said.

The suspect preyed on the ridesharing vehicle while it waited to pick up another passenger, police said.

Once the victims were out of the Prius, the suspect drove away. He’s described only as a man in his 20s.

It’s unclear which ridesharing company the Prius was associated with.
