Quebec City cabbie facing sexual assault charges

A 45-year-old Quebec City cab driver is facing sexual assault charges after two women approached police and said they had been molested in a taxi last Saturday.

Two separate incidents reported to police last weekend

A 45-year-old Quebec City cab driver is facing sexual assault charges after two women approached police with complaints that they had been molested in a taxi over the weekend.

In both incidents, which occurred separately, the cab driver began by making sexual comments before trying to touch and kiss the women.

The cab driver has not been identified. The company he worked for said he had been with them for about a year.

Police say those are the only two complaints that they received and there is no reason to fear taking a taxi in the city.
