Back when we were children, our parents always told us to never get into a car with a stranger or talk to strangers online. Now that we’re adults, we often utilize the power of the internet to call a stranger with a car to drive us places. Most would argue that such services, like Uber and Lyft, are safe, but the recent tragedy in Boston is making many customers think twice about these services.

At around 1:15 A.M. on March 30, a frantic woman reached out to the Massachusetts State Police. She explained how she had been sexually assaulted by her Uber driver before she escaped by jumping out of the vehicle. The adult female victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment while officers attempted to locate the perpetrator.

The initial investigation led officers to identify 37-year-old Daudah Mayanja as the primary suspect. The Uber driver was taken into custody later that day and charged with two counts of rape. The following day, agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement became involved. They have placed a detainer on Mayanja after determining that he’s actually a citizen from Uganda. ICE has not yet released any more details about the suspect’s immigration status.

The suspect remains in police custody, but he has spoken to media outlets over the phone. He reportedly told journalists that the “information that aired outside is wrong and false.” He alleged that the victim did ride with him, but she jumped from the car unexpectedly. He denies all accusations of sexual assault.

In response to this incident, Uber will be increasing its security features. They are adding a new feature that allows riders to call 911 directly from the app, which will automatically share their GPS location with the police.
