Uber Driver Junior Clarke Groped Passenger While Traveling – Report

An Uber driver is being accused of sexually assaulting a passenger in Massachusetts.

Junior Clarke, 31, was arrested by the state police on Saturday. He faces charges of indecent assault and battery and related crimes.

The state police learned about the incident from a 911 call received after 5 a.m. Saturday. The call was made by the person who said that a 25-year-old woman from her family told her she was sexually assaulted by the driver of an Uber cab. The victim was traveling from Methuen to Norwood.

The police sent out an alert for the vehicle. Determining that the victim was in Norwood, they went to the location but missed the driver.

The victim took a ride from her friend’s house in Methuen to another friend’s house in Norwood. As she had never availed an Uber service before, she asked the driver where she should sit. The driver asked her to sit in the front passenger seat.

According to SF Gate, Clarke asked the victim to kiss him and touch her inappropriately. She kept turning throughout the journey to prevent the driver from touching her. The assault stopped a few minutes before her destination arrived. Thereafter, she was transported to Norwood Hospital.

The police arrived at Clarke’s home to arrest him but were unable to find him. However, he agreed to turn himself in at the Andover Barracks later in the day, as reported by Patch.com. He has posted bail and will be arraigned on Thursday. It is not clear if he has a lawyer.

The driver has been banned from the company, according to a spokeswoman for Uber.
