An Ohio woman is being charged with raping and robbing a male taxi driver as an accomplice held the driver at knifepoint.
Brittany Carter, 23, was charged with first-degree rape and aggravated robbery in an incident that happened back on January 28.
Authorities say Carter and two males, one identified as 20-year-old Cory Jackson, called for a cab back on January 28 at the TownePlace Suites hotel. During the trip, Jackson allegedly held a knife to the throat of the 29-year-old driver.
Carter allegedly performed a sexual act on the man as he was held down. Carter and Jackson then allegedly stole $32 from the driver, who worked for Trinity Express Cab Service.
“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.”
Jackson is charged with aggravated robbery and complicity to commit rape, both of which are first-degree felonies.
Carter was taken into custody on March 10 and is being held on $60,000 bond. She was previously indicted on two counts of permitting drug abuse, as a result of incidents in January and February of 2016.
Jackson remains at large, and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Once the third driver is identified, he too will face charges, officials said.
