CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WHDH) — Police are investigating after a Lyft driver reportedly assaulted a passenger in Cambridge.

Police said due to the nature of the report, they did not say where exactly the incident happened. Some people in Cambridge told 7News that they felt unsettled by the news.

“I always feel safe taking those ride-share apps,” Allegra Terhorst said. “So it kind of makes me think twice about it. You know, sometimes, when you hear these stories.”
