Uber driver accused of kidnapping, raping woman in US

Uber driver Aiden Hager, 35, is accused of sexually assaulting a woman who was working on the company’s Austin, Texas, headquarters.

In a criminal complaint filed in Austin on Thursday, the woman said that in late August 2016, Hager sexually assaulted her at the company headquarters, at a parking garage and at a gas station in Austin.

She said she did not report the incident to Uber or its other drivers until last month, when she received an email from a driver with whom she had previously worked.

The man, whose name was redacted, allegedly drove Hager from a parking lot to the company offices, where Hager allegedly grabbed her by the neck and attempted to kiss her.

The woman said Hager forced her to perform oral sex and then repeatedly forced her onto the floor while she tried to fend off his advances.

Hager then drove her to a remote area of the parking garage where he sexually assaulted another woman, according to the complaint.

He is charged with aggravated rape.

Aiden, a former Uber driver who is currently unemployed, told investigators that Hager repeatedly told him, “I can get you anything you want,” and that he then drove the other woman to a parking spot in the garage, where he allegedly grabbed and sexually assaulted the woman.

The other woman said she left the area because she was too scared and worried that she would be arrested.

She was unable to reach Hager.

“I feel very violated, and I feel like I’m missing out on something that I’m so excited about,” she said in an interview.

She added: “I’m glad I’m not working for Uber any longer.”

Aiden has worked for Uber since February.

Hagers attorney, Jason Schulman, declined to comment on the allegations against him.

A spokeswoman for Uber, a company based in Menlo Park, California, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In March, a similar lawsuit was filed in San Francisco against the same man who allegedly assaulted the Uber driver.
