Suspicious Ride Share Activity – 202000000721 – 100-199 Dock St - 02/15 at 1am: An adult female victim reported that she was waiting for an Uber ride when a vehicle pulled up that the woman assumed was her Uber. The male driver told her to get in the front passenger seat, the woman got in to be taken to a destination in Annapolis. While they were traveling in the vehicle the woman realized they were on a highway and were not going to the destination in Annapolis. She told the driver numerous times that he had missed her exit and when she asked where he was taking her he replied that he was going to get her home. The woman began to plead with the driver to stop the vehicle and eventually he did, leaving her on the side of the highway. Right after he pulled away a vehicle stopped and the occupants assisted the woman in returning to Annapolis. At this time it is unclear if the driver that picked the woman up was operating as an Uber driver or any other ride sharing service. It is unclear if he mistakenly picked up the woman, mistaking her for another fare going to a different location. The investigation into this incident is ongoing. We urge people to always keep safety in mind when using ride sharing apps.
