LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – A cab driver was arrested after video surveillance allegedly showed the man sexually assaulting a woman in his vehicle, according to police.
Abdul Based was arrested Friday for the crime that happened on March 8, a Las Vegas Metro Police statement reported.
Authorities said the investigation was launched after Lucky Cab Company of Nevada received a call from a woman who said she left her phone in Based’s car.
A review of surveillance footage by company officials showed Based, 25, sexually assaulted the passenger while she was incapacitated, prompting Lucky Cab to report the incident to police.
Based remained held at the Clark County Detention Center facing one count of sexual assault.
