CALIPHORNIA: MUSLIM UBER driver accused of raping a female passenger, 21, is believed to have raped even more victims
Omar Mahmoud Mousa, 52, of Anaheim, faces felony charges of forcible rape, oral copulation and sexual penetration by a foreign object, Orange County District Attorney’s officials said. Mousa was arrested on March 7 at Los Angeles International Airport and is being held on $100,000 bail. He made his first court appearance yesterday, and prosecutors say he may have more victims.
CBS (h/t David Y) Prosecutors say Mousa first met 21-year-old Jane Doe on Oct. 24, 2015 because she needed a ride from her Anaheim motel to a Fullerton bar.
While working as an Uber driver, he took the women to the bar, but gave them a business card and advised them to call him directly when they were leaving instead of going through Uber, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
Early the next morning, prosecutors say Mousa picked both women up from the Fullerton bar and drove them back to their Anaheim motel room after receiving a direct call. Mousa then walked the women into their motel room, where Jane Doe’s friend immediately passed out on the bed, according to prosecutors.
