An Uber driver was arrested this Thursday in Georgia after being accused of raping a teenage girl
The teen reported to the police that she had been drinking with her friends at a bar on Sunday night. At some point, one of her friends offered to call her an Uber ride so that she can get home safe. However, this is when Abdoulie Jagne, aged 58, picked her up.
The driver purposefully committed the act after stopping the car along an unincorporated road.
The girl also mentioned that she was dropped off at an apartment complex that was close by and she immediately started banging on doors for help.
The police found the girl intoxicated, with her pants down her ankles; she was immediately transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Uber officials intervened and mentioned that the driver had worked for the company for a couple of months and released the following statement:
“What’s reported here is horrifying beyond words. Our thoughts are with the rider and her family during this time. This driver has been permanently removed from the app.”
The driver, Abdoulie Jagne, was sent to the Gwinnett County Jail in north central Georgia where he is expecting further charges.
