Passenger accused of stabbing, carjacking Uber driver in Grapevine

Police are asking for help in locating the suspect in a carjacking and assault investigation.

GRAPEVINE, Texas - Police are asking for help in locating the suspect in a carjacking and assault investigation.

The victim is an Uber driver who was dropping off a passenger at the Amli apartments on Dallas Road in Grapevine Thursday morning. His passenger attacked him.

The driver was stabbed multiple times before the suspect got in the driver’s seat and drove off.

Neighbors called 911 to get help for the Uber driver. Thankfully he is expected to recover.

Michael Kelada said he heard a loud commotion outside his apartment window, which faces Dallas Rd., at about 7 a.m.

"I went outside to see what was going on. The guy was panicking, in a panic mode, and was bleeding a lot from his arm, from his head," he recalled. "He said he’s an Uber driver and he picked up this person from Denton, and he said he stopped at a gas station somewhere and around our building corner, the guy starts stabbing him in the car. By the time he was outside the car to save himself, he was already stabbed several times."

Grapevine police released a photo of the suspect from security cameras.

He's described as a Hispanic male with black and gray hair who is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a plaid shirt, orange reflective vest and white construction hat.

He may be driving the victim’s blue 2016 Toyota Camry like the one pictured. It has the Texas license plate NMT9734.

"The suspect was wearing what looked like a construction uniform. He had a long-sleeved, buttoned down plaid shirt, an orange reflective vest, and a white construction hat," Grapevine PD spokeswoman Amanda McNew said.

Investigators are working to get more information from Uber about the passenger, who was picked up from a location in Denton County.

Detectives said it’s possible the suspect in still driving the victim’s blue Camry, and he should be considered armed and dangerous.

"We’re waiting to see what Uber tells us about who ordered the car. We’re waiting on more possible surveillance video from nearby businesses, but until we get that, we want the public to do everything they can to stay safe," McNew said.

Anyone who spots the vehicle or has information about the suspect is asked to call 911 immediately.

Grapevine police search for man who stabbed Uber driver multiple times

Grapevine PD release picture of Uber assault suspect

Grapevine police are looking for the suspect, Cesar Soto, 33, who got away with the Uber driver’s car.

GRAPEVINE, Texas - An Uber driver who was stabbed multiple times says he barely survived the seemingly unprovoked attack in Grapevine.

Carlton Bryant said it will take several weeks for his recovery but he’s thankful he was able to make it out of that car alive that day. Grapevine police have released a photo of the suspect, Cesar Soto, 33.

"I get kind of paranoid and shaky when I talk about it now," Bryant said in an interview with FOX4. 

He did not want to show his face but did share his story to warn others. 

He’s been driving for Uber about two and a half months to help support his family. He picked up a man in Lewisville headed for DFW Airport around 6 a.m. on May 13. Bryant says during the ride the man, who was wearing construction gear, seemed to be upset and talking about his relationship problems.

Nothing seemed out of the ordinary until the passenger asked to stop at a gas station, then changed the destination to a location near the Amli apartments on Dallas Road in Grapevine. 

"As soon as I put it in park, that’s when he exploded to the front, grabbed me by the head with his left hand," Bryant said. "I could see in the rearview (mirror) his right hand coming towards me, it’s a knife." 

Surveillance video at the apartment complex captured some of the attack. Video shows Bryant exiting the vehicle, then briefly struggling with the suspect, Soto. Bryant says in those moments of terror he thought he was going to die. 

"I’m thinking about my daughter, I’m thinking about my family. Am I ever going to see them again?" Bryant said.

In total, Bryant says he was stabbed about eight times.

"In my armpit, in the back, my arm over here and this is the hand that tried to stop the blade," he said.

Bryant got help from a bystander who called 911. 

Police recovered his stolen car in Colleyville with the knife and Bryant’s belongings still inside. 

"I don’t think he had intentions of stealing a vehicle or taking money or anything. I just think he woke up with something violent on his mind and whoever his driver was he was going to try to hurt them or kill them," Bryant said. "I don’t even know if he cares or if he has a conscience, or if he feels any type of guilt or remorse. But I would like to see him again and let him know, God was more on my side."

Bryant went through surgery to repair his hand and says his doctors have told him it’ll take about nine weeks for his wounds to heal. He’ll also have to go through physical therapy to regain movement in his hand.

Police say they are still actively looking for Soto.
