Uber Mistake Leads to Alleged Assault Attempt: Details from Arrest Affidavit

Kenneth Levelle Streeter

A man in St. Petersburg, Florida, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman who mistakenly identified him as her Uber driver. The incident reportedly took place in an SUV owned by his romantic partner, according to local police.

The arrest affidavits reveal that the woman had called for a ride-share service on Saturday evening and mistakenly got into a blue Ford Explorer driven by the alleged assailant, 32-year-old Kenneth Levelle Streeter. The affidavits indicate that the woman had consumed alcohol and did not notice that the direction of the SUV did not match her intended route or that her app showed she was not in the correct vehicle.

According to the documents, “Streeter parked the SUV behind an apartment complex and moved to the back seat where the woman was seated. He began kissing her and when she resisted his advances and attempted to leave the vehicle, Streeter allegedly pulled her back in, tearing off her white shirt and leaving her shoes outside the vehicle before closing the right rear passenger door. He then allegedly touched her inappropriately.”

However, the woman was able to escape by using a pocket knife and exiting through the driver’s side back door, as per the affidavits.

Police stated that the entire incident was captured on video and Streeter was positively identified by the registered owner of the vehicle, who had been in a relationship with him for several months.

Streeter is currently being held on a $200,000 bond for charges of attempted sexual battery and kidnapping. Jail records in Pinellas County also indicate that he is being held for ICE, as he is originally from The Turks and Caicos Islands.
