A Fremont resident has been indicted on first-degree felony rape and aggravated robbery charges in Hancock County after police allege she raped a taxi driver during a robbery.
According to Findlay police, Brittany S. Carter, 23, entered a taxi around 4:24 a.m. on Jan. 28 with Cory L. Jackson, 20, of Lima, who held a knife at the male cab driver while Carter performed a sex act on him.
The incident occurred in the 200 block of Larkins Street in the city, according to Findlay police.
"We don't know why she did it," Findlay Detective Lt. Robert Ring said Friday of the sexual act. "Maybe it was a distraction because they took money from him."
Ring said Carter and Jackson took $32 from the driver's pocket and left the scene. The man, who was driving a cab belonging to Trinity Express Cab Service, reported the incident to police and warrants for Carter's and Jackson's arrests were made. Ring said the man was not injured from the incident.
Carter was arrested on the warrant, but Jackson is still at large, Ring said.
"He has a warrant for his arrest for robbery with us and a murder warrant out of Lima," Ring said.
Carter shows no prior arrest record in Fremont Municipal Court or Sandusky County Common Pleas Court, though Ring said Findlay police have dealt with her in the past on drug-related charges.
Hancock County Court records show Carter was previously charged with felony possession of drugs and permitting drug abuse.
