Default Negro Uber Driver Kidnapped Women Passengers With Intent To Rape In Berkeley, CA


Uber Driver Accused Of Kidnapping Women Passengers With Intent To Rape In Berkeley

May 13, 2019 at 11:05 pm

BERKELEY (KPIX 5) — An Uber driver who was arrested last week in Berkeley is accused of trying to trap two female passengers in his car and demanding sex from them, according to authorities.

One of his victim had to get out of his moving vehicle in order to escape, police said.

Berkeley Police said the Uber driver, identified as 23-year-old Oakland resident Gebrele Abebe Amare, picked up a woman in her 20s at about 5:30 a.m. in the morning on May 2 in the area of Shattuck Avenue and Essex Street.

Amare was supposed to take the fare to her, but then told the victim he would take her to a room before he would take her to work.

Police said he then prevented her from using her phone and refused to let her get out of his car.

When the car got to the intersection of Ashby and Telegraph, police said the woman decided she had to act quickly.

She opened the door and threw herself out of the moving car. At that point, police say the suspect sped up in an effort to keep her inside.

She managed to escape and ran to a nearby Chevron gas station for help.

Later the same morning, police say Amare picked up another Uber customer, this time a teenage girl. According to court records, Amare touched the victim on her thigh, locked the doors, refused to let her out of the car.

He only ended up releasing the girl when she threatened to break the windows.

Amare was arrested on May 9 in the area of Ashby and Telegraph. The two women were able to identify Amare in a photo line-up. Both provided police with documentation from Uber that showed Amare’s first name and identified him and his vehicle.

He is currently in jail, facing two felony charges of kidnapping with intent to rape. Police said he confessed to kidnapping the first victim, saying he wanted to have sex with her and “pimp” her. But police say he is denying the second incident with the teenage girl.
