Brittany Carter, 23 years old from Ohio, was named and has been charged with raping and robbing a male taxi driver while two accomplices held the victim at knifepoint. Carter landed on nummbers of charges thiis month in a two-count felony indictment charging her with aggravated robbery and rape in connection with the alleged attack earlier this year in Findlay, a city about 40 miles south of Toledo.
According to local authorities who is handling the case, “two black males and a white female” called for a cab to pick them up at a place called Towne Place Suites hotel around 4:25 in the early hours of morning. During the subsequent trip, police stated, one of the passengers, Cory Jackson, 20, suddenly pulled out a knife and placed it against the unsuspecting 29-year-old driver’s throat.
While the victim was being held at knifepoint, Carter had allegedly performed a sex act on the Trinity Express Cab Service driver. Before exiting the cab and making a run for it, Carter and Jackson took $32 from the victim’s pocket, as it was stated on legal documents. The driver was not thankfully unharmed during the ordeal.
Carter’s indictment accuses her of “having purposely compelled” the victim to engage in sexual conduct “by force or threat of force.” Jackson has also been charged with aiding and abetting Carter’s rape of the taxi driver. He has also been indicted for aggravated robbery. The third passenger will be charged once he is identified, police say.
The young woman is being held at the Hancock County jail in lieu of $60,000 bond. Carter was also indicted twice last year on felony drug charges, according to court documents that show both cases are still pending. One indictment also accuses Carter of possessing heroin, while the second indictment alleges that she allowed her vehicle to be used in the trafficking of heroin.
