​Uber driver charged with raping unconscious teen

An Uber driver in California has been charged with raping an intoxicated teenager after she passed out in the backseat of his car, prosecutors announced Wednesday.

Samer Alaaeldin Mahran, 23, was supposed to drive a 17-year-old girl from a Huntington Beach bar to her Laguna Beach home in the predawn hours of Nov. 5.

At some point during the ride, the teen, only identified as Jane Doe by prosecutors, fell unconscious and Mahran parked a few blocks from her house rather than driving her home.

Prosecutors describe in chilling detail how Mahran climbed into the backseat before orally copulating and sexually assaulting Doe while she was too drunk to realize what was happening.

One of Doe’s family members, who had ordered the ride for her, “grew concerned” when she didn’t arrive home at the expected time, prosecutors said. A second family member then used the Uber application to track her ride and quickly found out that she was just a few blocks away.

Md. Uber driver accused of abducting intoxicated passenger

One of Doe’s family members, who had ordered the ride for her, “grew concerned” when she didn’t arrive home at the expected time, prosecutors said. A second family member then used the Uber application to track her ride and quickly found out that she was just a few blocks away.

A number of drivers for the San Francisco-based company have been accused of committing crimes against their customers in recent years.

The relative walked to the parked car, where they discovered Doe and the alleged rapist in the backseat. Mahran bolted from the scene, leaving his car behind as the relative helped the teen to her feet.

The victim’s family immediately alerted police, who identified Mahran using his description, license plate number and driver profile. He was arrested at his Huntington Beach apartment later that day.

Mahran was charged on a slew of felony counts, including rape by use of drugs, sexual penetration of a child over age 14 and unlawful sexual intercourse. He was released on $100,000 bond and is expected to reappear in court on Dec. 2. He could face up to 28 years in prison if convicted.

Uber officials did not immediately return a request for comment from the Daily News.

A statement posted to Uber’s website last year concedes that it is impossible for the company to guarantee every customer’s safety.

“We believe that Uber is a safe, reliable way to get from A to B,” the statement says.

“That said, no means of transportation can ever be 100% safe. Accidents and incidents will always happen.”
