Fake ride-share driver steals purse after following woman

This is the horrifying moment a fake ride-share driver follows a woman into her apartment before snatching her purse. Police in Maryland have released surveillance footage in the hopes that the public will help them identify the man seen on video in the early hours of March 30.





The victim was coming back from a night out when she used a ride-sharing service and got into a car believing it was her taxi, police said. The driver took her to her house and demanded money, which the woman refused, telling him she had paid via the ride-sharing app.



In the video, the man wearing a dark hoodie, dark jeans and dark shoes can be seen approaching the woman as she’s entering her building with a key. Surveillance footage from inside the elevator shows the man repeatedly trying to grab the woman’s purse.



Police say the man then reportedly entered the woman’s home and ‘stole property’ before leaving. The woman says the driver stole her cellphone so she was unable to check if he worked for the ride share. it was only when she got a new phone and checked her order history that she realised she never confirmed her taxi at all.
