Lyft Driver Accused of Sexually Assaulting a Woman in Her Home
According to Marie Claire, in 2018, 28-year-old Hannah Tarr was allegedly assaulted by her Lyft driver.
Tarr was extremely drunk and chose to be responsible and take a ride-share home. When she got into the car, she had fallen asleep. Once she arrived in her Chicago Humbolt Park Neighborhood, she recalls telling the driver, “I’m okay. I can walk.” She then walked to her apartment door and unlocked it. After opening her door, she recalls her driver pushing in behind her, grabbing her, kissing her, and pushing in behind her.
Since Tarr had been sexually assaulted in college and had a bad experience with the police, she did not want to involve law enforcement. Instead, she called Lyft to report what happened, and all they said was they would refund her $12 for her ride and never pair with that driver again.
Lyft did not provide any additional information or follow up with Tarr. She is unsure of the whereabouts of that Lyft driver and whether he still works for the company.
