AN illegal immigrant has been charged with raping, assaulting and robbing four victims while working as Uber driver.
California prosecutors said on Monday, that Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez targeted intoxicated young women.
The Mexican man, according to officials, drove women to their homes, assaulted them, and stole property including cellphones, computers and jewelry.
Alarcon-Nunez collected his fare payments through the smartphone app Venmo to disguise his identity and his Uber records.
DNA evidence helped lead detectives to Alarcon-Nunez, who was arrested at his Santa Maria home last week.
The 39-year-old faces 10 criminal charges, including rape of an intoxicated victim and first-degree burglary.
Detectives are looking for potential witnesses and trying to determine if there are additional victims in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties northwest of Los Angeles, where the Alarcon-Nunez had been driving for Uber since September.
Prosecutors said Alarcon-Nunez has also gone by the name “Bruno Diaz” and his Venmo username was “Brush Bat.”
