After the other customer was dropped off, Wimbley tried to leave but said her door was locked. She had to manually unlock it.
"As I'm getting out (of) the car, he, like, grabs my jacket part. But I yanked away real quick, so it slipped out his hand," she said.
The woman ran to a bus stop. The Uber driver tried to follow her at first, she said, but eventually left.
"I'm just glad that she was thinking fast, and she was acting fast. And she got out of the situation," said Theresa Peoples, Wimbley's mother.
Chicago police detectives are investigating the incident. An Uber spokesperson told WLS-TV the driver has been removed from the Uber platform and the company is cooperating with investigators.
