Police in the Pittsburgh suburbs say they're investigating a woman's claims that an Uber driver made unwanted sexual advances.

Ross Township police said the woman reported the incident about 8:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

The woman says the driver started making advances while driving her to a restaurant. The driver allegedly stopped the vehicle, but the woman says she pushed him away and he continued the ride to the restaurant where she got out and called 911.

Police said the woman wasn't physically harmed.

Investigators are getting a search warrant to obtain driver and trip information from Uber.

Uber is a ride-sharing service in which people hire drivers using a smartphone application. The drivers use their personal vehicles when giving people rides.
