RALEIGH, N.C. — A Meredith College student told police an Uber driver sexually assaulted her Tuesday night near campus.

A police report lists the incident as "forcible fondling" and says it occurred on Hillsborough Street between 8:30 and 9 p.m. The woman told police she was heading back to campus when the assault occurred.

An arrest warrant has been issued for 32-year-old Travis Linsay Wiggins of Wilson.

An Uber spokeswoman said Wednesday that Wiggins has been removed from the company's app as a driver.

Uber is conducting an internal investigation and will assist Raleigh police with their investigation as needed, the spokeswoman said.
