A video shared social media showed what appeared to be a male Uber driver trying to rape a female passenger, but his efforts were thwarted by a concerned civilian.
Uber driver caught attempting to [rape] young, drunk female, the clip claimed. In the footage, it is nighttime when a man approached a vehicle and recorded himself saying, Yo, what are you doing? The person with the cellphone never appeared on camera, but another unknown male was seen in the backseat of the vehicle with his pants down, next to an unresponsive woman. After being asked the question on camera, the person pulled up his pants and exited the vehicle.
It seemed the driver pulled his car over in a neighborhood to commit the crime as the person recording asked the man what he was doing in front of his house. The individual holding the phone panned his camera to show the scene, including a large Uber sticker plastered on the driver-side door. The car owner climbed back into the vehicle, but the good samaritan was not done with his investigation. Month of Ramadan and youre doing stuff like this? he asked. I said, Sorry, the driver replied. What the f**k are you doing? Listen, listen, this is disgusting me, the resident said as the driver started up the vehicle. The Uber operator pulled off, but not before the other male was able to get footage of his license plate.
The video was shared on social media and received a swift response from Uber Support. This video is horrifying, and we are taking action.
