A 22-year-old New Jersey woman hailed a black SUV livery cab on Lexington Avenue near 31st Street Saturday afternoon after some day drinking, fell asleep in the back seat, and woke up in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, with the driver (allegedly) grabbing her breasts and crotch through her clothes, reports the Daily News. The woman managed to escape the 38-year-old driver named Anjum Yaque, who’s not even licensed by the TLC. The good news is that the woman left her iPhone in the vehicle, which allowed police to trace the device, the SUV, and Yaque at his New Jersey home. Police have charged him with forcible touching, among other things. Well played, Apple developers.
