Woman Drugged At Peterborough Bar Then Sexually Assaulted By Cab Driver

This is just the worst story imaginable. An intoxicated woman who was apparently the victim of a date rape drug at The Junction nightclub Friday night was put in a cab by her friends to get her home safely, and the driver, in what's being called "a crime of opportunity", took her back to his residence and allegedly sexually assaulted her. The cab driver has been charged with sexual assault and abduction. Police say there is an alarming increase in the number of sexual assaults connected to date rape drugs in the city, and that women who go out together have to develop a buddy system and look after each other at all times. Apparently it is no longer safe to put them in a cab alone either. Terrible.
