‘CALIPHORNIA’ MUSLIM UBER driver accused of raping a female passenger, 21, is believed to have raped even more victims

By BI: Omar Mahmoud Mousa, 52, of Anaheim, faces felony charges of forcible rape, oral copulation and sexual penetration by a foreign object, Orange County District Attorney’s officials said. Mousa was arrested on March 7 at Los Angeles International Airport and is being held on $100,000 bail. He made his first court appearance yesterday, and prosecutors say he may have more victims.


CBS   Prosecutors say Mousa first met 21-year-old Jane Doe on Oct. 24, 2015 because she needed a ride from her Anaheim motel to a Fullerton bar.

While working as an Uber driver, he took the women to the bar, but gave them a business card and advised them to call him directly when they were leaving instead of going through Uber, according to the District Attorney’s Office.


Early the next morning, prosecutors say Mousa picked both women up from the Fullerton bar and drove them back to their Anaheim motel room after receiving a direct call. Mousa then walked the women into their motel room, where Jane Doe’s friend immediately passed out on the bed, according to prosecutors.

According to prosecutors, Mousa put Jane Doe on the same bed, and while she was intoxicated, pulled down her pants and raped her as she said no multiple times. When she eventually managed to push him away, he left the motel room and drove away.

Jane Doe reported the crime later that day to Anaheim Police, who investigated the case. Prosecutors filed charges against Mousa on Jan. 25, but he was out of the country at the time. He was arrested upon his return to LAX on March 7, and transported to Orange County Jail on March 15.

Anyone with more information or who believes they may be a victim can contact Supervising District Attorney Investigator Mark Gutierrez at (714) 347-8794.
