Former Vancouver Uber driver sentenced for sex assault on passenger
A former Uber driver has been convicted and sentenced sexual assaulting a passenger during a ride from Vancouver to Coquitlam.
Mohammed Abu Sayed, 69, was handed a six-month conditional sentence including two months under house arrest, followed by 18 months of probation.
During his probation, he is banned from operating a ride-hailing vehicle, taxi, limousine or any other cash-for-ride transportation. He is also banned from any liquor, bar, pub, nightclub or any other place with a liquor licence.
Abu Sayed was convicted in October and sentenced last week for sexually assaulting a then-21-year-old woman during an Uber ride.
Vancouver police investigated the complaint after the passenger came forward about the assault in August 2021.
