Police have appealed for witnesses after a woman claimed she was sexually assaulted by an Uber driver on Brisbane's north side overnight.

The driver had dropped a group of friends off at an Alderley home, before continuing to Gordon Park with the woman.

It was there the 22-year-old woman claimed she was grabbed and assaulted about 12:30am.

The woman said the driver then dropped her home.

Investigators have appealed for any witnesses who saw a blue 2015 Renault Captur to come forward.

The driver was interviewed and released without charge on Wednesday morning.

An Uber spokesman said the company was assisting police with inquiries.

It is the third alleged sexual assault linked to Brisbane Uber drivers since July.

Police have said the cases are unrelated, but in the past month have made appeals for women who have been assaulted in ride-sharing vehicles to come forward.
