Law enforcement officials in California say that an illegal alien Uber driver is facing nearly a dozen criminal charges stemming from alleged attacks on several young women.
Authorities charged 39-year-old Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez with 10 criminal offenses, "including forcible rape, rape of an intoxicated victim, oral copulation of an intoxicated victim and first-degree burglary," CBS San Francisco reported.
All four of Alarcon-Nunez's alleged victims are between the ages of 19 and 22 years old and all but one was intoxicated when they were sexually attacked. Investigators are looking for any potential witnesses and are still trying to figure out if there are any additional victims in the area where the attacks happened, just northwest of Los Angeles.
Prosecutors allege that Alarcon-Nunez solicited rides as an Uber driver, specifically targeted drunk women, drove them to their homes "assaulted them, and stole property including cell phones, computers, and jewelry."
San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow told reporters that sexual predators wait outside bars and "jump in front of the actual Uber driver and they will take someone unsuspecting to their home. And that’s a way of putting someone at risk, and in this case that’s exactly what’s alleged to have happened."
California became an official 'sanctuary state' at the beginning of 2018, meaning that the state will not comply with federal law enforcement officials who seek to enforce immigration laws. Last week, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra threatened to prosecute private citizens who help Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials with executing deportations of illegal aliens.
