A woman told police she was raped by an Uber driver and Seattle police are investigating.
About 3:15 a.m. Sunday, police responded after a woman went to a Capitol Hill home asking for help, saying someone had raped her. The resident looked outside, saw a crying woman she didn't know and called police.
When police arrived they found the woman with abrasions on both knees and her blouse looked as if it had been ripped open. The woman said she was visiting from Texas and had a room at the Edgewater Hotel.

UPDATE 2:45 p.m.: "After a follow up interview, the Uber driver has been completely cleared of wrongdoing," SPD spokesman Drew Fowler says. "There is still an ongoing and active investigation for an alleged sexual assault, but there is NO Uber connection."
