Warnings about a false Uber driver, sexual assault suspect to identify

(Ottawa)—The Ottawa Police Service Sexual Assault and Child Abuse Section received a report of a male offering a woman in her late 20s a ride while posing as an Uber driver. This occurred in the very early hours, in the ByWard Market area on Thursday, May 10, 2018.

While the male was driving the victim, he sexually assaulted her. He then directed her to go to a nearby ATM to get cash out to pay him for the ride. He followed her into the ATM insisting on payment; she paid him and then the male left. The victim reported the incident to police soon after.

The suspect is described as a light brown skin male, approx. 6’ tall (183cm), approx. 180 lbs (82kg) with short dark hair shaved at the sides (see pictures).

Police are concerned the male suspect is possibly targeting women who appear to be intoxicated when bars/restaurants are closing for the night.

Ottawa Police wishes to warn the public to verify the credentials of their Uber driver before entering the vehicle and remind the public that Uber drivers do not accept cash payment.

Investigators have determined that this incident is not linked to similar incidents reported in December 2017 and January 2018.
