A WOMAN was allegedly raped by an ‘Uber driver’ who sexually assaulted her after dropping her off at her home.
She was picked up by the man after a drunken night out, who then helped her up to her room when he dropped her off.
Gabriel Vasquez, 40, is now facing charges of violence over the incident.
He was taken off the app as soon as the incident was reported.
The San Antonio Police Department said the 22-year-old woman was at a bar and passed out in the bathroom.
KHOU 11 reported she was then helped into the Uber by bar staff.
A police report which was filed in October last year when the incident happened, said Vasquez helped the woman inside her apartment because she was unable to walk.
It stated he “escorted her to her bed and began to undress her.”
The victim told cops she told Vasquez “no” when he made his advances, but he carried on and allegedly raped her.
The woman told cops about what happened the next day.
The victim reported the incident to police and Uber the next day and was then able to identify Vasquez in a line up.
Vasquez denied he had sexually assaulted the woman when he was questioned on January 13.
However, according to an affidavit obtained by KSAT he later admitted to having sex with the woman even though he knew she was drunk.
Kayla Whaling, a spokesperson for Uber said in a statement: “What’s been described is greatly concerning and has no place anywhere.
“As soon as the rider reported this to us in October, we immediately removed this driver’s access to the app.”
The company does criminal background checks on its drivers, but Vasquez had a clean record before the incident.
He did not have a criminal record prior to last year’s incident.
