Also, according to San Francisco police, one of the women, after leaving the vehicle, discharged what’s believed to be pepper spray into the vehicle and toward the driver.

The video, shot by the driver, the 32-year-old Subhakar Khadka, shows the three women in the back seat cursing him out.

According to the police station, the woman who coughed on the driver also grabbed his cellphone from the center dash area and ripped off his face mask.

At the beginning of the video, the woman yells at him “F*** the masks!” while pulling hers off and then coughing directly behind him.

Next, the other woman claims she has “corona” and also coughs toward the driver.

The third one was the only one wearing a mask.

The driver explains that they have to leave the vehicle, but they refuse to do so.

Take a look at the video below: Content warning: Profanity:

According to KPIX, Khadka believes he was targeted because he’s a South Asian immigrant. She said:

“I never said anything bad to them, I never cursed, I was not raised that way. I don’t hit people, I am not raised that way, so they were not getting out of my car.”

Moreover, the man drove to a nearby gas station so they could buy masks for the ride — but he explained that racial slurs and taunting had already started. He added:

“If I was another complexion, I would have not gotten that treatment from them. The moment I opened my mouth to speak, they realized … it’s easy for them to intimidate me.”

When the women left the vehicle, the woman in red pepper-sprayed him, so he had to get out as well, as he couldn’t breathe.

According to San Francisco police, the driver regained possession of his phone, and the three women fled after the attack.

Yet, in a follow-up story, KPIX-TV revealed that on Thursday afternoon, Las Vegas police apprehended 24-year-old Malaysia King in connection with the incident, and the other suspect — 24-year-old Arna Kimiai — told police through her legal counsel that she intended to turn herself into authorities.

The station reported that King was charged with assault with a caustic chemical, assault and battery conspiracy, and violation of health and safety code.

They also added that Kimiai posted a video from her perspective behind Khadka, where she claims the driver tried to get her and her friends to exit his car while on the freeway.

KPIX added that Kimiai posted the clip on social media, and it involved much boasting about how lucky the driver was that nothing else happened to him and that Uber would be getting sued.

The woman in the video asks:

“Where my check at?”

After he found out about King’s arrest, the driver said:

“It’s a sign of relief we are getting there and we are one step closer. I believe they should be lawfully punished – whatever our law says over here.”

As of Friday afternoon, a GoFundMe campaign set up for Khadka has eclipsed the $71,000 mark.

He added:

“I am blown away seeing that from the community. I would like to use it for attorney fees if I may need in future, and some of that money will go toward family maintenance.”

His wife and son are in his native country of Nepal, so he uses money earned while Uber driving to help support them.
