RALEIGH, NC - On July 19, sheriff's deputies arrested Muhammad Arslan Afzal, 30, after he reportedly sexually assaulted a young woman inside his vehicle, while driving for ridesharing giant, Uber.
While the assault took place in May and was reported at that time, because of the trauma, the victim has only recently been able to speak to investigators in detail about the ordeal, according to court documents.
According to investigators, the driver stopped his car on the shoulder of Interstate 540 near Knightdale early on May 9 and asked his passenger to move to the front seat to help him with his GPS.
The driver then sexually abused the woman before eventually dropping her off and quickly fleeing, states a police report.
Afzal has been charged with kidnapping, attempted forcible sex offense, indecent exposure and sexual battery. He is currently being held at the Wake County Jail on $250,00 bail.
*Both so-called “rideshare” services, Uber and Lyft, have a history of hiring illegal aliens, along with many “migrants” from countries whose cultures often treats women and children as nothing more than property. Not surprisingly, at least 395 women were sexually assaulted as a result of using both of the popular ridesharing services between 2013 and 2018, according to the watchdog website “Who’s Driving You?”
In 2017, the state of Colorado actually fined Uber $8.9 million for allowing people with criminal convictions to work as drivers.
