Police: Second suspect in viral Uber assault still hasn't turned herself in

San Francisco Police said Friday a second woman wanted in connection with the assault of an Uber driver last weekend "is still outstanding," despite communicating through her legal counsel that she intended to turn herself in as of Thursday.

"Our investigators are looking to place (Arna Kimiai) into custody as soon as possible," Public Information Officer Robert Rueca told KCBS Radio in an email on Friday afternoon. "If you locate Arna Kimiai please contact your local police department and be prepared to provide her location, clothing description, and any other pertinent information."

It was announced Thursday that one suspect, 24-year-old Malaysia King, was in custody for the viral assault on a San Francisco Uber driver, which happened last Sunday in the city's Bayview neighborhood.

After it was announced both King and Kimiai, 24, were wanted for assault and robbery, King turned herself in to Las Vegas Police. She was booked on charges of assault with a caustic chemical, assault and battery, conspiracy and violation of health and safety code.

Kimiai, communicating with officers through her attorney, told police "of her intent to turn herself in soon," a news release Thursday said.

Uber driver Subhakar Khadka captured part of the now-viral incident on his rearview mirror camera. He alleged that when he picked up a group of three women on Sunday, one of them wasn’t wearing a face mask and became angry when he asked her to wear one.

In the video, two of the women are shown purposefully coughing in the car, with Kimiai coughing on and taunting Khadka before grabbing his phone from the dashboard and ripping off Khadka’s mask.

Khadka alleged that one of the women also sprayed pepper spray into the car.

A third woman was in the car but police said she is not currently wanted.

Kimiai has since been banned from using Uber or Lyft, even defending her actions in an explicit video posted to social media.

A GoFundMe campaign set up on Khadka's behalf has now raised over $72,000.

Anyone with information on Kimiai's whereabouts is asked to call San Francisco Police at 415-575-4444 or text TIP411.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that both Kimiai and King were arrested Thursday morning.
