A woman’s teen-age daughter used Uber car serve to return to her home last night after a late evening. The car drove up the family’s driveway around 3:30 AM. The girl walked to the door but the driver called her back. When she went back, the driver struck her on the head and raped her.
The family has a security camera in the driveway. The camera showed the driver carrying the girl’s limp body back to the house. She is now at home, trying to rest. The entire family is of course very shaken.
Because of the cameras, they know who did it. As of this morning, he had not yet been arrested, but many officers are involved and he will be.
Update from Uber:
While there are not many details available, we take these matters extremely seriously. Uber is working closely with the authorities to help in any way possible. We cannot comment on an ongoing criminal matter, but it is our policy to deactivate the driver account of someone if we receive information that they have been suspected of committing a crime. The safety of our users is absolutely paramount, and we will continue to be vigilant that riders’ safety and security are protected. – Rachel Holt, Washington, DC General Manager, Uber
