Oh, for sure. I honestly think the companies could care less when things like this happen bc all they care about are the ratings and profits. Had we heard things like this too, I would have just told him to avoid any area remotely close to the city. I’m sure there were many incidents already like this but it was all probably covered up. Smh. We just have to be vigilant and look out for each other I guess.

I told my husband to not go down there ever. His shifts are in the evening and I feel like it’s just never safe at any time of day. But I know sometimes he is tempted to go down there bc even if the money is not any greater, there’s always more orders than our current area.

And I totally understand. I hate that this happens to people who are literally just trying to make some way of living. Thanks for the well wishes though.

For sure I can. For starters, the police think that this was all schemed from the start. Makes sense because how else with the robbers know the exact delivery spot he was at and get him so quickly?

He got an order to an apartment building and realized there was no apartment number. He was about to enter to building but someone stopped him (my guess is they were just waiting by the side in the shadows till my husband got close). That “someone” said he was the one who ordered and went to take the order. Husband went back to the car and as soon as he got in, a car pulled up behind him so he couldn’t get out of the parking spot. I asked him if there was any “red flags” about the order that would have made him suspicious and he said the only thing he thought was weird was that there was no apartment number. All his previous orders always had one.

Husband said that the same thing happened at that same location, just in an apartment building next to the one he was robbed at the night before. Then, right around the time his robbery happened, FOUR other similar carjackings happened. I was always so worried that this could happen to my husband as I kept hearing on the news that Uber ride robberies were on the rise. Please, please be careful.

Edited to add: my husband also works for Uber Eats. The incident happened when he was working for Uber Eats. Either way, neither of these companies make it easy or safe for their drivers.

It occurred somewhere off of Loch Raven Blvd. Husband doesn’t remember the exact street he was on. He works for grub hub delivery in the evenings. The location where the phone pinged last was not far from Valentino’s (on northern parkway).

Edited to add: the location of the phone is in an apartment building. The police were able to track it down to the apt number but obviously cannot just barge in. They said they have someone waiting outside in case whoever has it, brings it outside.

I’m hoping the suspects who stole the car (they were young, according to my husband) will be stupid enough to speed through a camera or park it somewhere it can get towed. I’m sorry you had to go through that too and it’s always a pain to run back and forth with insurance with anything.

Edited to add: we will most likely throw away that car seat too. My son is old enough to be in a booster now (also meets weight requirement) so if we need to buy again, it won’t be too expensive. But thank you for that link. I’ll still look into it.
