Uber driver accused of groping passenger during ride

PRINCETON - Police are investigating after a woman reported she was sexually touched by an Uber driver during a trip from Pennsylvania to Princeton last week, police said.

The 21-year-old New York woman called from Olden Street around 11:45 p.m. on Saturday to report the incident, Princeton police said.

The woman told police that she had taken the ride service to visit her friend in Princeton and the driver of the Uber inappropriately touched her at some point during the trip. Police did not know whether the alleged touching happened in Princeton.

The woman called police after she got out of the car, police said. Officers had not  yet identified the driver.

A spokeswoman for Uber could not immediately comment on the incident Tuesday morning.
