The Jakarta Post
A 27-year-old woman was reportedly sexually assaulted and then abandoned around Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Banten, on Monday.
Jakarta Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono said the incident occurred after the victim had ordered a ride through a smartphone app at around 4 a.m.
“The victim took a white Grand Livina [Nissan]. The driver did not take her to the destination but to a quiet, dark place,” Argo said Tuesday, as quoted by kompas.com.
The driver also reportedly stole the victim’s mobile phone.
Argo added that police were still investigating. (wnd)
