Gothamist reports that an Uber driver was accused of raping a woman in New Jersey last weekend.
The driver, 25 year old Efren Madrigal drove the woman and her friend to her apartment and was invited upstairs. They chatted a bit and played cards. The alleged raped happened soon after.
Madrigal was new to Uber, having only started three days before this situation took place.
An Uber spokesperson told NJ.com that the driver “was removed from the platform as soon as we were made aware of the allegations“.
Madrigal was arrested a few days after the attack and multiple charges were brought against him.
