Uber Driver Accused of Locking Female Rider Inside Car, Demanding Sex

A Uber driver from West Rogers Park Chicago, held in on a $100,000 bail on August 19th, for allegedly locking a ride-share customer inside his vehicle and demanding sex from her. According to authorities, the suspect was 44-year-old Muhammad Fahim, of the 6100 block of North Washtenaw Avenue. Fahim reportedly faces three counts of unlawful restraint for an incident on July 4th which began with him allegedly picking up the 19-year-old victim through the ride-share phone app.

In the incident, the victim requested an Uber, but her request was somehow deleted. When the woman volunteered to pay cash, Fahim instead demanded sex from her. When she refused, Fahim locked the car doors and refused to let her out unless she gave in to his demands. When Fahim’s car finally slowed due to traffic, the woman leaped from the car. Reports show that there was no indication that she was injured.

So far a spokesman from the rideshare app has called the rider’s story “troubling,” and reported that Fahim had been removed as a driver while Uber looks deeper into the matter.
