Millbury Police have put out a warning after a former Uber driver has been accused of stalking area women.

Boston 25 News reports Richard Agyemang has been going around stalking women and won’t take no for an answer.

“The fear is he is aggressive. His behavior is escalating,” Millbury Police Detective Andrea Warpula told the television station.

Agyemang allegedly approached two Panera Bread employees at the Shoppes at Blackstone Valley in Millbury recently, following one to her vehicle trying to engage her in conversation.  He told police he was looking for a girlfriend, but ended up being charged with annoying and accosting, a misdemeanor that doesn’t require jail time.

Police say Agyemang has been fired by Uber, but has still been picking up female passengers, usually when bars are closing.

Detectives from Millbury, Worcester, Shrewsbury and Natick all have open cases regarding Agyemang.

Police remind you that Uber drivers are not allowed to accept cash, and should only accept passengers through the app, and legitimate drivers will always provide you a photo of the driver and type of car and license plate number.

A photo of Agyemang’s red Acura is below.  If you think you may have had an unusual encounter with him you are urged to call Millbury Police at (508) 865-3521.
