Toronto police have charged a 38-year-old man with sexual assault after a woman using a ride-hailing app was allegedly sexually assaulted by her driver.
Police say the incident happened early Sunday morning after a woman ordered a ride home from the city’s west end.
They say she was sexually assaulted shortly after getting into the vehicle.
Toronto police spokesperson Victor Kwong says similar cases usually involve people posing as a driver for a ride-hailing app.
But in this case, he said the accused actually worked for the company, which Kwong did not identify.
He says it was easy to locate the suspect, who is from Mississauga, because his information was listed on the app.
