Uber driver allegedly raped drunken woman

Sadly after a night on the town, one woman's night ended in horror following her ride home from the popular rideshare company, Uber. Likewise, a 22-year-old Chicago woman alleges that 30-year-old, Maxime Fohounhedo sexually assaulted her after he took her back to his apartment while she was in a drunken state. The woman only remembers moving to the front seat of the car after Fohounhedo couldn't find her destination, and after he had placed her hand down his pants, she blacked out.

The woman then only remembers waking up on Fohounhedo's couch the next morning, unable to remember what had happened the last night. After the alleged incident, the woman then texted a friend about what happened, reminding her to make sure she follows through with reporting it. Additionally, at the time of the alleged situation, Fohounhedo and his wife shared a joint Uber account, and she also stated that anything that may have happened was consensual. Fohounhedo's wife now also faces charges stemming from the account sharing including fraud, which is against the Uber platform.
