Police: Armless security robot loses fight to drunk man
The robot only suffered scratches and is back on the job
By PoliceOne Staff
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — A security robot was attacked by a drunk man during a parking lot patrol last week.
"I think this is a pretty pathetic incident because it shows how spineless the drunk guys in Silicon Valley really are because they attack a victim who doesn't even have any arms," citizen Eamonn Callon said.
The robot, named K5, suffered minor scratches and is back on patrol.
Knightscope’s co-founder told ABC7 that this event proves the technology is useful because police caught and booked the suspect.
Sylvain is facing prowling and public intoxication charges.
