By Ted Raymond, CTV News Ottawa, January 15, 2018

Ottawa Police say more charges have been laid in connection with the investigation into an alleged fake Uber driver in the ByWard Market.

37-year-old Sami Hassan Khreis was arrested last week, after police investigated reports of a man accused of sexual assault and stealing credit card information.

Police said the suspect would target women leaving ByWard Market bars late at night, telling them he was an Uber driver and was offering rides. Police allege the victims' financial data would be stolen with a card skimmer. At least one person reported being sexually assaulted.
