A Twin Cities Uber driver is charged with trying to kidnap a young woman he picked up on the job.
Dahir Aden, 50, is charged with a felony count of false imprisonment after he refused to drive a teenage girl home and instead took her to his home in West St. Paul. The girl told police Aden planned to sexually assault her.
Investigators say it was the girl’s quick thinking that allowed her to be rescued.
According to the criminal complaint, Dahir Aden picked up a young woman from her North Minneapolis apartment the night of Aug. 4. He then picked up her friend — who was dropped off at work in south Minneapolis.
Then the girl asked to go back home, but Aden refused.
“The person who shows up doesn’t take them to where they want to go,” Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said.
Aden allegedly began driving the girl to his apartment in West St. Paul. The girl texted her friend telling him to call police.
When the man and victim arrived at his apartment, he told the girl “go inside to have quick sex,” and told her to hang up her phone.
