Transcript for Man in video posed as ride-share driver and robbed woman: Police
on the dangers facing customers who get into cars for rides, and tonight, the ride share nightmare in bethesda, Maryland. A woman taken home, thinking she was in a ride share. The man following her in and allegedly robbing her. The driver demanding money, getting into her apartment. Tonight, investigators are now asking for the public's help. And here's ABC's David Kerley. Reporter: This is the man police are looking for tonight who they say posed as a ride-share driver. That woman had ordered a car and believed he was the driver. The car pulled up and I get into the car. He just said, you know, your address is not register egg, which should have been alarm bell number one. Reporter: When she got home, the man demanded payment, even though she said she'd paid on the app. He follows her into her building and then into the elevator, attempting to steal her purse. Frighteningly similar to another ride share case when a 21-year-old student, Samantha Josephson, got into what she thought was her Uber ride in South Carolina last month. Her body was found the next day. The man posing as the ride share driver charged with kidnapping and murder. Samantha's parents on "Good morning America" saying we all need to ask ride share drivers, who's my name? It has to be automatic, like putting on a seat belt. You have to ask, "What's my name," because it can be anyone. Reporter: In the bethesda, Maryland, case, police say that suspect got all the way into the woman's apartment early Saturday morning, stealing some property, then fleeing. The parents of the woman who was killed are also asking that all states require front license plates so that riders can compare the license they get on their app with the car that comes to pick them up. David? Really important to try to do all right, David Kerley, thank you.
