There have been five sexual assaults this year in Halifax involving cab drivers.
Police say a woman was picked up on July 9 at around 9 pm in Halifax, after the ride the woman the driver how much she owes for the ride, the cab driver replied and said the machine is broken and will take a few minutes to fix it.
From the Winnipeg Free Press:
While waiting, police say the man tried to kiss the woman, locked her door and touched her in a “sexual manner” over her clothing without her consent.
Police say the man spoke with an accent, and was about five-feet-seven-inches, with short dark hair and pronounced nose.
It’s the fifth assault involving a cab driver in recent months, and police are investigating the possibility that it is related to some of the earlier incidents.
