An Uber driver faces a rape charge after investigators say he attacked an intoxicated 16-year-old passenger.
Gwinnett County police spokeswoman Michele Pihera says the incident occurred in Gwinnett County.
The friend who arranged for the Uber ride gave officers identifying information on the driver, along with vehicle information.
The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment and an evaluation. The case was transferred to a Special Victims Unit detective, who contacted Uber for information.
With the information gathered from Uber, the detective said the incident likely happened along South Norcross Tucker Road in between Jimmy Carter Boulevard and Old Norcross Road Tucker Road near Norcross.
“The information provided by the company of Uber does corroborate the victim’s story,” said Corporal Michele Pihera of the Gwinnett County Police Department. “We know that the trip from the bar to the apartment complex should have taken a specific amount time, but the trip data indicated that it took a much longer amount of time to complete.”
Police identified the Uber driver s Abdoulie Jagne, 58. An arrest warrant for Jagne was issued for the rape. Additional charges could be forthcoming, police said.
Gwinnett County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Jagne and took him to the Gwinnett County Jail.
Investigators for the case ask that any other women who may have been sexually assaulted by Jagne to call the Gwinnett County Police Department.
Uber issued the following statement regarding the incident:
“What’s reported here is horrifying beyond words. Our thoughts are with the rider and her family during this time. This driver has been permanently removed from the app.” ~ Uber spokesperson
Georgia lowered the minimum legal drinking age to 18 in 1972. It was one of 24 states (18 states lowered it to age 18 and six lowered it to 19) that reduced the age between 1970 and 1973. The state’s minimum legal drinking age was raised from 18 to 19 in 1980. In 1985, it increased to 20 years old, and became 21 in 1986.
Police are not releasing information about the case at this time and the identity of the victim is protected due to being a minor.
What was she doing in a bar in the 1st place? I know some girls can pass as older but a 16 year old passing as 21? Sounds like the bar has a lot to answer for and according to Georgia Law, looks like they will face fines and possibly suspension of their liquor license.
Yes she is a victim of an evil man that raped her, but we have to set emotions aside and look at this from the outside.
- – How did she gain entry to the bar, fake I.D. or did the bar knowingly serve a minor?
- – How old are her “friends” and what part did they play in getting her into the bar and getting her drunk?
- – Was her family aware of her location and actions?
These are just some of the questions that detectives obviously will get answers too and hopefully and hopefully those who helped her get drunk will be held accountable.
This is an example that should be told to every female teenager, to help them understand why parents have rules and why it is so vital for parents to always know where their child is and what they are doing.
We all know kids will lie and deceive, they will go to parties and they will drink. These are just facts of life, it is on us as parents to talk to our kids and help them understand why our rules at set in place.
I have teens, 2 of which are female and let me tell you, they can drive a man to the brink of insanity and to question the existence of reality! They baffle me, they relentlessly and purposely push the boundaries of rules and see just how close they can get to not being late.
The love in the home is unconditional and I don’t always explain why the rules are the way they are. I have sat them down and showed them news segments of a few girls that were kidnapped in our area.
Such heartbreaking examples and I feel as parents, we have a few “moments” where we can truly hit home why lying and deceiving can lead to tragedy and horrific outcomes for them.
Teach your children about situational awareness and be blunt and honest with them, God knows they think they know everything and as parents, we are as dumb as elephant dung.
If you are one of the lucky ones who have those teens who listen and follow every rule in place, up for a trade?!? All kidding aside, being a parent is the most difficult and wildest rollercoaster ride of emotions EVER.
