Houston Uber Driver Accused of Sexually Assaulting Passenger

Posted on April 3, 2015

An Uber driver is accused of sexually assaulting a customer in Houston. Police say Duncan Eric Burton raped a passenger. 

According to the Houston Police Department, the victim, who was visiting from out of town and out with a group of friends at a bar in the Midtown area, was picked up by the driver.

Police said she was too drunk to tell the driver where she was staying, so he offered to take her to his home to sleep. That's when she alleges he raped her.
