TOLEDO, OH - An Ohio woman has been arrested and charged after police say she raped a taxi driver during a robbery.
Authorities say Brittany S. Carter, 23, of Freemont, is facing first-degree felony rape and aggravated robbery, two first-degree felonies charges for raping and robbing a male taxi driver in Findlay, Ohio on the night of Jan. 28 while an accomplice held the driver at knife-point.
According to Findlay police, the incident happened around 4:24 a.m. on Jan. 28 when Carter and her accomplice 20-year-old Cory L. Jackson entered a taxi. Jackson held a knife at the male cab driver while Carter raped him.
"We don't know why she did it," Findlay Detective Lt. Robert Ring said Friday of the sexual act. "Maybe it was a distraction because they took money from him."
Ring said Carter and Jackson stole $32 from the driver's pocket and left the scene. The man, who was driving a cab belonging to Trinity Express Cab Service, reported the incident to police and warrants for Carter's and Jackson's arrests were made. Ring said the man was not injured from the incident.
Carter was arrested on the warrant, but Jackson remains at large, Ring said.
"He has a warrant for his arrest for robbery with us and a murder warrant out of Lima," Ring said.
