A Denver-area Uber driver was arrested Sunday after being accused of kidnapping and kissing a 15-year-old girl who was trying to get home from work.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's office says 29-year old Ahmed Muse picked up the girl on Saturday along with other passengers through Uberpool.

Police say the driver refused to drop the girl off at her home after he dropped off the other passengers.

They say he returned the girl to her original destination, locked the doors and kissed her against her will before letting her go.

Uber said it removed Muse from the app in response to the arrest.
