Uber driver Jose Antonio Canales Sanchez, aged 51, was arrested on November 1, 2023, after allegedly sexually assaulting a 32-year-old woman in his vehicle. The incident occurred at approximately 6:24 a.m. when Canales Sanchez picked up the woman. Instead of taking her to her intended destination, he pulled over into a parking lot.
Canales Sanchez then entered the backseat of the vehicle where the woman was seated and proceeded to undress her while touching her private parts. The woman managed to fight him off by punching and scratching him, allowing her to escape.
Later that same afternoon, police apprehended Canales Sanchez. He now faces charges of sexual battery and false imprisonment. The specific location of the incident has not been disclosed.
