After a night out in Liverpool, a woman was sexually attacked by a private hire cab driver.
As she sat in the front seat of a private hire taxi on her way home, a young woman was allegedly sexually abused by the driver.
After exiting a nightclub on Victoria Street in the city center, the woman in her twenties was alone when she got into the vehicle.
According to a social media message purporting to be from her, she was on her way to Smithdown Road in the early hours of Sunday.
Buses are being impacted by a “perfect storm,” with routes around Liverpool being canceled.
This week, the tweet was extensively circulated on social media, and police have confirmed that they are investigating the claim.
“We are investigating following accusations that a woman was sexually assaulted in a private hire taxi in Liverpool,” a Merseyside Police spokesperson told The Washington Newsday.
