San Francisco Cabbie Accused of Raping Passenger
The Associated Press ^ | Sep 23, 2005 | Anon

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A taxi driver has been arrested and jailed for allegedly raping a passenger, and police on Friday were asking any other victims to come forward to help the investigation.

Huseyin Akbana, 35, was arrested Thursday while driving his cab and booked on rape and false imprisonment charges.

Police said Akbana picked up his victim Monday in downtown San Francisco, drove her to the city's Tenderloin neighborhood, climbed in the back seat and sexually assaulted her.

"We're asking the public for information to see if they are any more victims out there," San Francisco police Lt. Molly Pengel said.

Police also said they were investigating a similar Sept. 10 attack but gave no details.

I guess old Huseyin couldn't wait for his 72 virgins. I hope they throw away the key...and I'm guessing he won't have an easy time in the lockup.

The Sharia punishment calls for the victim to be raped by all of huseyin's male relatives and then stoned to death for enticing poor huseyin.

Right. When the victim is an infidel woman it isn't really rape, after all.

Under Sharia Law--- we should be able to hunt down and kill worthless bastards like this....

If they regard "infidel" woman as no more that a warm body to satisfy their purient desires -- they're too dangerous to allow to live in civilized society...

They are clearly not ready for the 21st century..

Semper Fi

This is disgusting of course, but I am trying to figure out how he got her to stay in the back seat. Did he have a weapon? (no pun intended of course!)

Two possibilities: 1) she was drunk and could not offer much resistance or 2) he punched her hard in the face or choked her.

At least the victim lived. There was a previous, highly publicised case similar to this where a pretty young blonde woman got into a Frisco cab with a mooselimb driver and he drove her off to an isolated area, raped her, and then killed her. His defense was that she had no money and so offered him sex in exchange for a ride home. They went to the isolated area to consumate the transaction, he said, whereupon she demanded it rough, was accidently asphyxiated in the process, and he buried her body because he figured no one would believe his story because of "discrimination." Well, in the end he was right about one thing: nobody believed him.

When I lived in Manhattan and had the occasion to put a young lady in a cab to get her home, I always made it clear to cabbie that I was writing down the taxi number before I sent them off.

Here's a third possibility.

The Tenderloin district in S.F. is a notorious hangout for hookers and streetwalkers.

Perhaps she was going there to ply her trade and he wanted a freebie.

Unless, of course, she wasn't paid for her services in which case she would howl like a banshee.
