Uber imposter drove woman from Uptown to Woodbury, attempted assault

- A man posing as an Uber driver picked up a woman in Uptown, drove her to Woodbury, Minn. and attempted to sexually assault her. Woodbury police said the attempted assault happened at about 6:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 20.

It’s unclear if Woodbury was the victim’s intended destination, or if the suspect made his own decision to drive to the eastern suburb. The victim fought the driver and ran to a house to call 911. She was not physically hurt.

Woodbury police have gathered a description of the suspect and his vehicle, but those details are not being released at this time. Police said the public release of the descriptions could compromise the investigation.
