A Cabbie picks up a drunk woman... and rapes her.
CALGARY (Sun Media) - A cab ride turned into a nightmare for a city woman who was raped by her driver, a lawsuit claims.
The $250,000 action, against an Associated Cab Ltd. driver and the company, alleges the woman was assaulted on her way home from a nightclub.
Her statement of claim, a copy of which was obtained by the Sun, says the woman was out celebrating her 32nd birthday on March 15, 2005.
It says she "was not able to drive a vehicle and elected to take a taxi cab home."
The driver "diverted his cab from the intended route and parked in a remote and secluded area," it claims.
It alleges the driver got into the back seat with the woman, removed her clothing and raped her. A statement of defence disputing the unproven allegations has not yet been filed.
Mohammed Choudhary faces a preliminary inquiry April 30, in connection with the alleged attack.
