RadioOnFire.com – Annapolis Police are investigating after a woman’s ride-share attempt went downhill fast.

WBAL-TV 11 reports that officers were called at 3 a.m. by a woman who said she ordered a ride-share two hours earlier in the 100 block of Dock Street. Police said the woman approached a mid-sized silver SUV that pulled up and assumed it was the ride for which she was waiting.

Police said the male driver told the woman to get in the front passenger seat. Police said the woman was going to a destination in Annapolis but realized the driver got onto a highway and was not going to the destination.

“The woman felt very uncomfortable. It was obvious the vehicle wasn’t going where she thought it was,” Annapolis police Sgt. Amy Miguez said. “As they were driving, they were on a highway and she was expecting to go to another destination in Annapolis … She told the driver, ‘You missed my exit,’ and, ‘Where are you taking me?'”

Investigators told 11 News that the driver responded he was “going to take her home.”

Police said the woman pleaded with the driver to stop, which he eventually did.

“She got out of the vehicle. He got out, as well. He grabbed her arm. She continued to talk to him about where she’s going. He got startled. He went back into the car and he drove off, leaving her on the side of the highway. Right after he left, another car pulled over and she was able to get help from those occupants and they took her back to Annapolis,” Miguez said.

Police said it was unclear whether the driver who picked the woman was up was operating as an Uber driver or any other ride-sharing service. Police said it is unclear if the man mistakenly picked up the woman, mistaking her for another fare going to a different location. An investigation continues.

Investigators say the driver is on the loose and may not even work for a ride-share company.

“We want to make sure that if this is someone who’s pretending to be a ride-sharing driver that people are aware of it, making sure that they’re careful and check their apps,” Miguez said.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 410-260-3439.
