A lot of things about Somalis confuse me.
For example: how come their foreheads are so big, yet their intelligence is so low?
And why are all their women six feet tall by the age of 14?
These are cosmic mysteries I may never understand.
However, here’s something I do understand quite clearly: white people should never, under any circumstances, get into a taxi with one of them.
An Uber driver was arrested on Sunday and is accused of kidnapping and forcibly kissing a 15-year-old female passenger in Golden on Saturday, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office said. Now, the victim and her mother are speaking out.
According to deputies, just after 10 p.m. on Saturday, Uber driver Ahmed Muse picked up the teen at her job in the 100 block of North Rubey Drive in Golden using UberPOOL to go to her home 10 miles away.
Brianna Allen lives just 15 minutes away from work at the Cast Iron Tavern, but says the whole trip took an hour and a half. Allen and her mother, Shamara Ludwig, spoke exclusively with FOX31’s Alex Rose about the frightening ride.
“We’re on the way to my house at first, and then the Uber driver had turned around,” said Allen. “When I looked on the phone, I noticed that it actually wasn’t on the Uber app, it was on Google Maps,” she added.
Knowing that she was a few blocks from home, she offered the driver $10 so she could walk home so she didn’t have to travel to Interstate 76 and Pecos, the destination for another passenger just to return to Golden, according to law enforcement.
When the driver finally drove Allen back home, the teenager said the driver forced himself on her.
“He locked the doors, turned off all the interior lights and kissed me on the cheek twice. And so I tried pushing him away, and he grabbed the back of my neck and kissed me on the lips,” she recalls. “I saw the unlock button, I clicked it, and I got out of the car.”
Muse was identified through the Uber app and arrested on Sunday. He faces charges of second-degree kidnapping, false imprisonment, and harassment.
