Newark, DE-A woman was sexually assaulted by an armed man claiming to be a ride-share driver near the University of Delaware early Saturday.
The 21-year-old woman was walking on South Chapel Street near East Delaware Avenue in Newark, just a couple blocks from campus, at about 1:15 a.m. when a man pulled up, identified himself as a ride-share driver and asked if she needed a ride, according to the Newark Police Department.
The woman had not called for a ride, but got into the vehicle. After she got into the vehicle, the man drove northbound before pulling over and forcing the woman at knifepoint to perform a sex act, police said.
She exited the vehicle "after the sexual act was completed" and called 911 from a nearby residence, according to Newark police.
The woman told police the man was driving a silver, four-door GMC truck with an extended cab. Authorities later released pictures of the suspected vehicle in the area.
If anyone has any information regarding this incident, they are asked to call police.
