Police arrested Uber driver Harbir Parmar, 24, of Queens, New York after he allegedly kidnapped a female passenger and groped her breasts.

According to the female victim, Harbir Parmar groped her breasts after she fell asleep in the back of the car. The victim was then dumped on the side of the road and charged $1,067 for a ride to Boston she never took.

Uber says the victim has been refunded all of the money she was charged.

An Uber driver who allegedly kidnapped a passenger and assaulted her before dumping her on the side of a road in New York has been charged.

Harbir Parmar, 24, of Queens, was charged with kidnapping and wire fraud in U.S. District Court, the Justice Department announced in a criminal complained unsealed Tuesday.

The woman reportedly got in Parmar’s vehicle and fell asleep. During this time, Parmar allegedly changed the woman’s destination to Boston, Massachusetts and drove in that direction before pulling over on the side of the road, prosecutors said.

When the woman woke up, Parmar was allegedly in the back seat with her, with his hand underneath her shirt and on top of her breast. The woman told investigators she asked to be driven to White Plains or a police station, but Parmar refused, and instead dropped her off on the side of Interstate 95 in Branford, Connecticut — a town more than 80 miles from Manhattan.

Parmar was charged with kidnapping for the alleged incident.
