A man was supposed to be giving rides to disabled people, instead he raped a 23-year-old woman with a mental disability, police said.
Last week, police in Garland, Texas, arrested Samson Assefa Lemma on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a disabled person. He was a contract driver for the transit system in the Dallas area.
Around 10:10 a.m. on June 6, a 23-year-old woman with a diagnosed mental disability was picked up at her Garland home by Lemma, according to police. He was supposed to take her to her workplace.
But, during the transport, Lemma assaulted the victim, police said.
Lemma was arrested at his home. He is being held in jail without bond.
There are no other known victims, but police say there could be more. Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact (972) 485-4840.
