A 23-year-old have been arrested and charged with raping and robbing a male taxi driver.
The lady, Brittany Carter, of Freemont, was indicted earlier this month on two first-degree felony counts in connection to the incident that took place in late January.
According to the Findlay Police Department, at around 4.25am on January 28, Carter and two ‘black males,’ one of them identified as Cory Jackson, called the Trinity Express Cab Service asking to send a taxi to pick them up from the TownPlace Suites hotel on Tiffin Avenue in the city.
During the ride, police said Jackson pulled a knife on the 29-year-old driver and Carter performed an unspecified sexual act on him. The attack took place in the 200 block of Larkins Street in Findlay.
Before the suspects fled on foot, Carter and Jackson allegedly stole $32 from the victim’s pocket.
The driver then went to the police to report the incident and warrants were later issued for Carter and Jackson’s arrests.
Their third accomplice has not been named and Hancock County Prosecutor Phil Riegle told The Toledo Blade he does not expect to bring charges against that person.
During the ride, police said the 23-year-old woman ‘purposefully compelled’ the taxi driver to engage in a sexual act under duress.
Records show that Carter was indicted twice in 2016 on felony drug charges of heroin possession and allowing a vehicle to be used in the trafficking of heroin.
The woman is being held at the Hancock County Jail on $60,000 bond.
Meanwhile, Cory Jackson is being sought on charges related to the January rape and robbery and also on an unrelated murder warrant out of Lima, Ohio.
