Southern California Uber Driver Accused of Raping Passenger

January 15, 2020

An Uber driver was arrested on suspicion of raping a woman who said she fell asleep in his car after a night of drinking and woke up to him assaulting her, authorities said.

The suspect, Alonso Calle, had contacted police and said he was the accused Uber driver, but claimed he had consensual sex with the woman in Fontana early Sunday, police said in a statement.

Detectives interviewed Calle, 32, then arrested him. It wasn’t known Monday if he has an attorney.

The woman called police around 3:30 a.m. Sunday to report the alleged assault.

Calle said he anticipated the woman would tell police that she had been raped.

He claimed she got mad, “stated something about being raped and wanted out of his car,” the police statement said.

Calle left the area and later called the authorities.

“Calle admitted the victim was very intoxicated but still offered him sex,” the statement said.
