WASHINGTON – A 35-year-old Uber driver has been arrested for allegedly raping a 20-year-old customer last year.

Anouar Habib Trabelsi, of Alexandria, was arrested Tuesday and charged with first-degree sexual assault for the Dec. 8 attack.

Authorities say the victim was raped in the driveway of her Cleveland Park home after celebrating a friend’s birthday on U Street, according to court documents.

She told police the driver repeatedly tried to make small talk during the ride home. At one point, Trabelsi asked the victim if she had ever dated a Moroccan man. She did not respond, according to court documents.

The victim says she had already paid the $36 fare and was walking to her door when Trabelsi came up behind her and grabbed her arms.
