Lyft passenger charged with hate crime accused of jumping bail

A Lyft passenger accused of a hate crime in July is on the run after missing court recently.
Matthew W. Dunn, 39, was free on $5,000 bail after being arrested on an assault charge, accused of attacking a Lyft driver on July 21 because of the driver’s heritage, which is a hate crime, according to court records.

Dunn missed court last month prompting prosecutors to ask that his bail be revoked.

“Mr. Dunn needs to turn himself in and make this right,” said Assistant Harris County District Attorney Nathan Beedle. “We believe he is still in the Houston area.”
