Woman who was driven into river by man she met on dating app claims her partner said, 'I’m done with this'
PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND: Police are hunting for a man after a woman reportedly told the cops that he allegedly drove her into the Providence, Rhode Island, river on Sunday evening, September 25, after a fallout between them. The woman claims she met the man on a dating site and was at a boat launch when they both got into a small quarrel before the terrifying incident unfolded.
The woman informed the police officers that she met the man three months ago on a dating app known as 'Plenty of Fish.' The incident happened at the Gano Park Boat Launch along the Seekonk River, according to the police report obtained by Khon2. The two were inside the car at the Gano Park Boat Launch when the man allegedly became angry with her. The infuriated man thought the woman was "playing with him" and said he was "done with her," the woman told the police.

The woman claimed the man told her, “I’m done with this, you have been playing me.” Police allege the man then accelerated and crashed the car into the water of Seekonk River with both of them inside the car. The panicked woman quickly opened the passenger seat and swam toward the shore, reported the authorities. She then ran down the street in a cry for help. The woman then found a resident who eventually called the police.
When the police questioned the woman about the man's whereabouts, she told the officers that she wasn’t sure whether the man got out of the car. According to the police, the woman was primarily focused on getting to safety and was not sure if the man made it out of the car. The woman did not appear to be seriously injured in the incident but was soon transported to Rhode Island Hospital to be evaluated.
The man was nowhere to be found, reported the police. Although the officer did notice some wet footprints walking away from the boat launch. The woman described the identity of the man as a black male with short hair and a beard. She said he was wearing a black hoodie, dark blue jeans and white sneakers. It’s unclear whether police have identified the man, nor whether he’s facing any charges.
