Taxi driver is arrested following alleged rape of woman in Dublin

A taxi driver was arrested after allegedly raping a woman he picked up after she left a takeaway on Camden Street on September 19th last.

The 32-year-old woman claimed she fell asleep in the taxi and awoke to find the taxi driver on top of her. Though she pleaded with him to stop, he would not. 

The traumatised woman later alerted Gardaí and was brought to the Sexual Assault Treatment Unit at the Rotunda where it was confirmed sexual activity had taken place. 

A taxi driver has since been arrested and his car confiscated as Gardaí continue their investigation.
