Creepy Uber driver kissed Long Island woman with 2-month-old: lawsuit

A Long Island woman is suing Uber after a driver allegedly propositioned her and kissed her — all while her 2-month-old daughter rode along.

Maryna Yaramiachuk, of Valley Stream, says that on Sep. 30 of last year her driver — referred to only as Abdo — “turned simple banter into a sexual conversation regarding our client’s sex life,” according to the new Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.

Abdo allegedly asked her if her husband satisfied her in the bedroom, before grabbing her thigh and offering up his nearby apartment where they could “have a good time,” according to the court papers.

Yaramiachuk, “was scared because she was unsure how far he would go while her newborn was in the car,” the court documents say.

“I was praying to God to make it to Brooklyn. I had the Uber application on just to make sure I was going the right way,” Yaramiachuk told The Post.

She feared, “He could drive wherever he wants, turn off the application and do something bad.”

Then when Yaramiachuk arrived at her parents’ home in Brooklyn Abdo allegedly put his hands on her and kissed her, the court papers say.

After, Abdo called her three times that day, Yaramiachuk said.

Now, she is fearful to leave her house and goes to therapy.

“I have a fear of being outside with my daughter … I can’t go far,” she said. “I’m scared to take taxis.”

The 30-year-old woman says she complained to the ride-sharing app which refunded her $29 fare, apologized and said they would temporarily suspend Abdo while they investigated. But she says she never heard back about the conclusions of their investigation.

The lawsuit says that Uber doesn’t properly train or vet its drivers and they negligently hired Abdo.

“In just the first five months of 2018, Uber drivers have been accused of at least twenty incidents of sexual assault or harassment, seven incidents of assault, one death, and allowing two felons behind the wheel,” the suit alleges.

“Uber holds itself out as a safe mode of transportation for the public including women and children,” Yaramiachuk’s lawyer Adam Slater said. “Clearly they let my client, her daughter and many others down and must be held accountable.”

A spokesperson with Uber said the company conducts background checks for all its drivers but could not specifically comment on the case.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
