- A Ghanaian Uber driver in the US has been accused of raping a female passenger
- Frederick Amfo has escaped following the call for his arrest
- The Ghanaian Uber driver was also living illegally in the US
Police officials in the United States are chasing after a Ghanaian Uber driver, Frederick Amfo, following allegations of rape.
The 30-year-old driver, who is staying illegally in the USA, was reported to the police by one of his female passengers who claimed he had forcibly had sex with her in his car.
The complainant, Emily Murry, says Frederick Amfo locked the doors to his car and assaulted her sexually in the backseat.
In fact, police officials in Weymouth, Massachusetts show that the DNA collected shows the Ghanaian Uber driver indeed raped the lady. He was charged with sexual assault and a Quincy District Court set bail at $10,000 after which he was given a stay-away order.
Fox news, Court records show that Amfo was also given 24 hours to surrender his passport if he made bail. But he made bail later that afternoon without surrendering his passport.
After hearing the news of the man escaping, the lady he reportedly raped, Murray said she was very disappointed.
“If I went to Ghana and I committed a crime, I wouldn’t expect to be able to hop on the plane and say sorry about that, here’s some money. I would expect to answer for it. Accountability. And there had been just zero,” she revealed in an interview with Boston Herald.
