Twin Cities Teenís Quick Thinking Thwarts Uber Driverís Kidnapping
CBS Minnesota ^ | September 14, 2016 | Kate Raddatz

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — 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.

The girl texted her friend a picture of Aden’s car and his address — police immediately responded. Aden was questioned and arrested.

A spokesperson for Uber said all drivers go through a criminal background check.

“It wouldn’t have shown anything, because he doesn’t have any history of concern,” Backstrom said.

Safety experts recommend traveling in pairs, checking an Uber driver’s rating on the app, and checking in with family and friends, all of which the victim DID in this case. Ultimately leading police to her.

Now what the hell was I talking about... :)

Oh yeah, they HATE than women can dress this way.

We’re stuck with 3 million so MASSIVE reeducation starting at young age in the schools is necessary.

Like I assume they did with the nazi kids.

Very few rapists begin their rap sheets at age 50.

"...Police! I am being raped in a silver Chevrolet sedan near the 7-11 convenience store on Blauvelt Avenue. The Uber driver's name is Dahir. Send help now!..."


My suggestion would be to call 9-1-1 and keep the line going without an intermediary involved like the dialogue above.

No criminal record because he probably wasn’t in the country very long.

I’d love to know the specifics there, but I doubt we’ll ever get them. I certainly wouldn’t bet against you.

And I ignore “no weapons” entreaties from companies like Uber. What they don’t know won’t hurt them, and makes me (and their driver) safer.

She pushed critical information to potential help in a manner that kept it hidden from the attacker.

If she tried to call, maybe he hears her, maybe she can’t get a description out before he grabs the phone and flings it before speeding off with her. She did fine and is alive to testify against the bastard.

During the ride, the victim sent text messages to her friend to call the police. When they pulled up to Aden’s apartment complex, he told the victim to “go inside, go inside to have quick sex.” The victim told Aden “no” and got out of the car.

Aden continued to say, “come on now, we are running out of time. Let’s just go have sex.” Aden also became aggravated and told the victim to hang up her phone and eventually tried to take her phone, but the victim was able to get away.

Once officers arrived, they asked Aden how he knew the victim. He initially told police the victim was his girlfriend, but later admitted she was not his girlfriend.

Aden also told officers he was just giving the girl a ride home to Minneapolis and officers questioned why he was in West Saint Paul if he was giving the girl a ride to Minneapolis.

An officer also located a large amount of condoms in Aden’s possession.

Aden faces up to three years in prison and or a fine up to
