BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -

A 23-year-old Uber driver has been charged after a 49-year-old passenger was stabbed in suburban Detroit.

Jacob Allemon was arraigned Sunday on an assault charge.

The victim was stabbed in the chest, back and face early Saturday in a Bloomfield Township parking lot after he and his wife sought a ride home after a party.

Police say the driver may have been angered after his window was tapped and told the couple to exit the car.

Officers found the men fighting in a Honda Civic. The victim was treated at a hospital and released.

Allemon faces a Dec. 27 probable cause hearing. Court records don't list a lawyer for him.

Uber spokeswoman Kayla Whaling says Allemon has been banned from the ride-sharing app. The company has offered to assist investigators.
