Brittany Carter, a 23-year-old from Ohio in the United States, has been charged with raping a taxi driver at knifepoint, BBC World News reports.
Police say she performed a sex act on the 29-year-old while a 20-year-old man, Corey Jackson, held a knife to the driver’s throat on January 28 this year, at around 4:24 am.
Police allege the duo then stole AU$42 from the victim before fleeing the scene.
“We don’t know why she did it,” police Lieutenant Robert Ring told reporters, adding that the sex act could have been used as a “distraction” to steal money from the man.
Carter, who was arrested after the driver reported the incident, now faces first-degree felony rape and aggravated robbery charges. She is also accused of heroin possession.
Her alleged accomplice is still at large and there is a warrant out for his arrest. He is facing charges of two first-degree felonies: aggravated robbery and complicity to commit rape.
