A 23-year-old woman from Ohio has been arrested and charged with rape and aggravated robbery targeting a male taxi driver. Brittany Carter, of Freemont, was indicted earlier this month on two first-degree felony counts in connection to the incident that took place in late January.
Carter's suspected accomplice, 23-year-old Cory Jackson, has been charged with aggravated robbery and complicity to commit rape but remains at large.
According to the Findlay Police Department, at around 4.25am on January 28, Carter and two 'black males,' one of them identified as Cory Jackson, called the Trinity Express Cab Service asking to send a taxi to pick them up from the TownPlace Suites hotel on Tiffin Avenue in the city.
During the ride, police said Jackson pulled a knife on the 29-year-old driver and Carter performed an unspecified sexual act on him. The attack took place in the 200 block of Larkins Street in Findlay.
Before the suspects fled on foot, Carter and Jackson allegedly stole $32 from the victim’s pocket.
The driver then went to the police to report the incident and warrants were later issued for Carter and Jackson’s arrests. Their third accomplices has not been named and Hancock County Prosecutor Phil Riegle told The Toledo Blade he does not expect to bring charges against that person.
According to Brittany Carter's indictment, cited by The Smoking Gun, the 23-year-old woman 'purposefully compelled' the cabbie to engage in sexual conduct 'by force or threat of force.'
The woman is being held at the Hancock County Jail on $60,000 bond.
Meanwhile, Cory Jackson is being sought on charges related to the January rape and robbery and also on a murder warrant out of Lima.
