PHOENIX — Police say the third and final suspect in a Phoenix Uber Eats attack has been arrested.

Rashad Griffis, 19, was located and arrested on February 19.

Previously, Phoenix Police Department said 18-year-old Nehemiah Gee was identified and arrested.

A 13-year-old girl was also arrested, but her name was not released due to her age.

The three suspects are accused of seriously hurting an Uber Eats driver who was picking up a food order at the IHOP near 24th Street and Baseline Road on February 5.

The attack was one of several recently involving rideshare drivers. The week before the UberEats driver was attacked, an Uber driver had his throat slit while in Tolleson.

In January, a pregnant Lyft driver was stabbed and killed by a passenger she dropped off in Tempe.
