Perth Uber driver charged over indecent assault of passenger

Perth Uber driver charged over indecent assault of passenger

Police Monday sought additional victims of a "brazen" Uber driver who allegedly carried an unconscious, possibly drunken woman from his vehicle into a hotel room and sexually assaulted her after he picked her up in downtown Los Angeles. She was Facetiming with a friend when she told the driver he was going the wrong way, but Ricci allegedly told the victim "we are just taking a little ride", according to an arrest report.

Police say they have video of Spence carrying the unresponsive 24 year old from his vehicle into the motel. Hayes said Spence rented a room and carried the unconscious woman, who was intoxicated, inside before sexually assaulting her.

Spence is being held on $1,000,000 bail. They believe there may be other victims and they are asking anyone with information to come forward.

Joondalup Detectives have charged a 28 year old man as a result of their investigation into an incident that occurred on Saturday 22 April 2017. He is described as a black male, 5 feet 11 inches tall and 225 pounds, driving a 2015 silver four-door Nissan Sentra with California license plate 7XUX293. "Sexual assault is a very personal crime", Hayes said.

Spence had been with Uber for about six months and was believed to have worked around various parts of the Los Angeles area.

A spokesman for the ride-hailing company Uber released the following statement to NBC4: "No person should ever have to experience the violent act that has been reported to police".

Alaric Francis Spence, 46, was arrested on Friday in Los Angeles on suspicion of kidnapping to commit sexual assault, after a female passenger said she woke up in an unfamiliar motel room.
