Last weekend, an Uber driver named Ahmed Muse allegedly kidnapped and assaulted a 15-year-old female passenger he was driving home from work in Jefferson County.

According to the police, Brianna Allen had ordered an UberPool ride for the 10-mile drive home from her work at the Cast Iron Tavern. After initially heading to the teen’s house, the first stop on the route, Muse turned the car around and started driving to the other passenger’s house, claiming that his Uber app wasn’t working properly, and that he needed to drop the other passenger off first. But the teen managed to get a glimpse of the driver’s phone and saw that he was not actually using the Uber app, and was instead using Google Maps.

After the detour extended what should have been a 15-minute trip to an hour and a half, the driver finally arrived at the girl’s house and proceeded to lock the car doors and force himself on her, kissing her multiple times. Fortunately, the teenager was able to unlock the car door and get out of the car. The driver was identified and arrested the next day, and is facing multiple charges, including harassment, kidnapping and false imprisonment.

While the teen is physically unharmed, both the teen and her mother are understandably very upset, and reportedly left feeling unsafe in their own neighborhood. The police investigation is ongoing.

Ride-Sharing Sexual Assault is a Disturbing Trend

It has been reported that over the last four years 103 Uber drivers have allegedly kidnapped or assaulted passengers riding in their cars, and investigations done by the states of Texas, Colorado, Massachusetts and California have found that ride-sharing companies regularly fail to screen their drivers adequately, at times even hiring drivers with a known criminal background.

While Uber acknowledges the problem and is taking steps to address it, these incidents do still occur. As of the date of this writing, Uber has been the subject of three lawsuits concerning sexual assaults committed by their drivers, and 31 of the 103 drivers accused of assault have been convicted, while more drivers are facing criminal charges and civil cases.

Client

This is a top-notch law firm who puts their client first. Colleen Parsley walked me through all the steps of my lawsuit. She is the best lawyer you can partner with. Mike Rosenberg was the insurance specialist and has outstanding expertise. Between the two of them we were able to settle my claim with two different insurance companies who had no intention of settling with me directly. I received a recommendation to contact the Gold Law Firm after a year of providing evidence and expecting coverage of my home damage after a water heater failure. I finally realized my only option was to hire a lawyer. I am very grateful that I found the best!
