Police: Uber driver charged with raping unconscious woman

LANSDALE, Pa. (AP) — Police say an Uber driver has been charged with raping a passenger he picked up at a casino and who became unconscious in the car.

Ahmed Elgaafary, of Lansdale, faces multiple offenses, including rape, sexual assault and indecent assault of an unconscious person.

Pennsylvania State Police say the alleged attack happened around 2:20 a.m. Feb. 10. They say the driver picked the woman up from the Valley Forge Casino in King of Prussia. Rather than taking her home, police allege he took her to a residence and raped her.

Elgaafary was charged Wednesday.

Uber says in a statement late Friday that the report is “appalling” and that its thought are with the woman and her family. Uber says that the driver has been “removed from the app.”

Elgaafary is in Chester County Prison. His lawyer’s voicemail box was full Friday.
