Indian-American Uber Eats delivery person attacked in NY

New York: An Indian-American Uber Eats delivery person was stabbed several times in an attack by a person described by police as a “super perp”.

Bharatbhai Patel was attacked early Tuesday morning when he was on an electric bike to make a delivery, according to The New York Post.

The alleged attacker, Sean Cooper, was arrested later Tuesday by police, who called him a “super perp” because he had been arrested 103 times for various alleged crimes, the Post said.

In New York police terminology a “perp” is short for “perpetrator” of a crime and they use it to refer to suspects and convicts.

Patel, 36, told the Post that the alleged attacker “asked nothing. Not, ‘I need money’, nothing”.

He also told the newspaper that none of the people around him at the time of the attack came to his aid.
