A man has been arrested after he allegedly used his lover’s car to sexually assault a woman who mistook him for an Uber driver, Law & Crime reported. 

St. Petersburg police arrested Kenneth Levelle Streeter, 32, on charges of attempted sexual battery and kidnapping. According to arrest affidavits obtained by the outlet, the woman called an Uber and mistakenly jumped into a blue Ford Explorer. The woman was reportedly tipsy and had not been paying attention to the direction of the suspect’s SUV which was going the wrong direction. 

“The defendant parked the vehicle behind an apartment complex and entered the back seat where the victim was seated,”

documents stated.

“The defendant then began kissing the victim’s body and when she refuted his advance[s] and tried to exit the vehicle, the defendant forcibly pulled her back into the vehicle, ripping a white shirt off the victim and leaving her shoes outside the vehicle, and then closed the right rear passenger door. The defendant put his hands down the victim’s pants and touched her vagina.”

The victim managed to take out a pocket knife and was able to escape the driver’s side back door, according to the affidavits.

“This is all captured on video,”

police wrote.

“The defendant was positively identified by the registered owner of the vehicle, whom he had been dating for several months.”

Streeter is being held for ICE at the Pinellas County jail on a $200,000 bond. He is from the island of Turks and Caicos, police documents reveal.
