A MUM has warned young girls of the dangers of getting into a mini cab on their own after her daughter was sexually assaulted on Saturday morning.
The anonymous post on social media pleads with other Mums to warn their daughters of the dangers of some mini cab drivers.
After leaving a bar in Wokingham on Saturday morning, her daughter had to fight her way out of the mini cab to escape.
She left the bar at around 2am and went to get a mini cab from Elms Road and inside the silver BMW were three Asian men.
The post read: "Scared, she said where she wanted to go and they proceeded to go in the wrong direction. She asked them to stop 5 times....They carried on driving. During this time the passenger in the back started touching my daughter and made sexual requests."
The driver of the mini cab stopped down Finch Road and the daughter punched the passenger and kicked her way out of the car before running to a nearby house for help.
The post read: "This is a serious crime and I would ask you to tell your young ladies to please be careful and vigilant when getting into a mini cab.
"Ask to see their badge and to call the fare into their base. Please do not let this happen again!"
James Williams, a spokesman for Thames Valley Police, said: "I can confirm the incident was reported to us.
"The allegation is that the victim was sexually assaulted over her clothing at about 2am on Saturday. The victim left the vehicle and sought help from a member of the public. The matter was then reported to Thames Valley Police.
"If anyone has any information please contact the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
