Funny how most of the stories here about LYFT and UBER Ride-share services involve MUSLIM drivers and sexual assault allegations. Do yourself a favor if you’re a female, request a non-Muslim driver when you take Lyft or Uber.
NBC15 via Creeping Sharia (h/t JesseJ) WISCONSIN: A downtown Madison resident was sexually assaulted by a Lyft driver, Hassen Abdirizaaq Ahmed, 38, inside her apartment early Sunday morning.
Joel Despain, a spokesperson with the Madison Police Department, said the 25-year-old woman had just gotten a ride from the driver. He gained access to her Langdon Street apartment just before 2 a.m. He claimed he needed to use the bathroom. “He was very pushy,” said Despain.
Despain said following the assault, the woman contacted police immediately and provided information that led to the suspect being found. Despain said he was still driving in the area and was arrested after a traffic stop.
28-year-old Hassen A. Ahmed of Madison was arrested for two counts of second degree sexual assault.
Madison Mayor Paul Soglin said this isn’t the first time there has been an assault by the driver of a ride sharing app. Soglin said he wished cities could do more to regulate the industry. “Right now our hands our tied…The state took over that area and specifically said, ‘We the City of Madison cannot use our safety standards to regulate these vehicles,” said Soglin.
