Metro Detroit woman injured after refusing to give Uber driver sexual favors

INKSTER, Mich. (WXYZ) - A 22-year-old Inkster woman said she was attacked by her Uber driver after being propositioned for sex.

Ashley Johnson ended the night on the floor in pain at around 2 a.m. Friday morning. 

Instead of a tip, he demanded a sexual favor from her.

Horrified, she immediately declined and said she would give him some tip money upon arriving home.

The driver said that would be okay, but he suddenly had a change of heart. 

"I opened the door and he grabbed my arm and sped off," she said. "But my leg was outside the door, dragging me down until my arm got out the car."

She said she was left with road rash on her knee and torn muscles in her arm.

Johnson has not been able to get in contact with Uber despite calling and sending emails.

This particular Uber ride was not set up on her phone, but rather the phone of someone else she doesn't know.

Uber released this statement:

"What's been described is horrible and has no place on the Uber app or anywhere. We take all allegations very seriously and are looking further into this report."
