Police investigating sexual assault involving taxi driver

On December 27, police received a report that on December 26 at approximately 10 p.m. a cab driver drove a female passenger to a residence in Dartmouth and sexually and physically assaulted her. The woman sustained non-life threatening facial injuries.

Currently, we have limited details about the incident.

Sexual assault investigations are very complex. We recognize that reporting a sexual assault to anyone, let alone police, can be difficult. We are committed to respecting a victim’s rights, and as part of our victim-centered, trauma-informed approach to sexualized violence, we work closely with victims to ensure they’re willing to proceed with a police investigation, which includes giving a statement about the incident and providing a description of the suspect if possible. Sexual assault investigators have been taking these measures since first speaking with the victim.
