Police can confirm that a report was received in early July of an indecent assault late one evening in June of a woman passenger in a taxi by a man purporting to be a taxi driver. The report nor the subsequent investigation indicates that the victim was drugged by the driver. A man, age 37 of George Town, was arrested after the report was received and is currently on Police bail with numerous conditions, including not to operate a taxi or be out at night. The man is not a licensed taxi driver but was driving a licensed taxi at the time, and the Public Transport Board has been informed.
The matter is under police investigation.
