Uber driver allegedly made unwanted advances
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police in the Pittsburgh suburbs say they’re investigating a woman’s claims that an Uber driver made unwanted sexual advances.
Ross Township police say the woman reported the incident about 8:45 p.m. Tuesday.
The woman says the driver started making advances while driving her to a restaurant. The driver allegedly stopped the vehicle, but the woman says she pushed him a way and he continued the ride to the restaurant where she got out and called 911.
Police say the woman wasn’t physically harmed.
Investigators are getting a search warrant to obtain driver and trip information from Uber.
Uber is a ride-sharing service in which people hire drivers using a smartphone application. The drivers use their personal vehicles when giving people rides.
