A man believed to be an Uber driver spat at a woman on a York street.

North Yorkshire Police is appealing for witnesses and information about the assault that occurred on Fifth Avenue at 10am on Friday 28 June.

A man driving a silver Skoda, believed to be an Uber taxi, is alleged to have blocked the road to oncoming vehicles and then shortly after spat at a woman driving a red vehicle along Fifth Avenue at the time.


A North Yorkshire Police spokeswoman said:

  • We are requesting the public’s assistance to help establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.

    In particular, we are appealing for information about a potential witness who was behind the woman’s vehicle at the time of the assault and initially got out of their vehicle to speak with the man involved before the alleged assault.
