That's when police say the suspect drove to a motel in North Hollywood, rented a room, carried her inside and assaulted her. The vehicle has an Uber sticker in the front windshield. She woke up unaware of where she was or even how she got there.

Investigators distributed a photo of the suspect and of his auto, a 2015 silver four-door Nissan Sentra with license plate number 7XUX293, in a campaign to determine if other victims are out there.

He has five previous felony convictions related to possession and sale of narcotics in Los Angeles and Ventura counties and as far north as Sacramento.

According to police, the woman was on FaceTime with a friend when she noticed Ricci was driving the wrong way down a dead-end street. "We are working with the Los Angeles Police Department to fully support their investigation, and the driver has been banned from the Uber app". The ride-sharing service issued a statement on the incident: "No person should ever have to experience the violent act that's been reported to police". The exact dates of Spence's felony convictions were not immediately available.

Spence was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping to commit sexual assault.
