Uber Driver ‘Abducted Female Passenger and Raped Her’ in Upscale Virginia Neighborhood
An Uber driver accused of raping a female passenger at an upscale Virginia neighborhood over the weekend has been arrested, police said.
Sewanou Bisile Yoro, of Norfolk, picked up the woman between 9:34 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Saturday in Bay Colony near the Oceanfront neighborhood where he allegedly assaulted her inside the cab, police said, WTKR-TV reported.
The 34-year-old has been charged with abduction, rape, aggravated and sexual battery after police arrested him Monday.
Police have not released the victim’s name. Yoro is being held at a county jail without bail.
The driver has been a part-time Uber employee for two to three years and reportedly earns about $350 a week, court records show, according to The Virginian-Pilot.
Yoro told General District Judge Gene Woolard during his arraignment Tuesday that he’s lived in the area since 2010.
His preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 4.
