OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - A 70-year-old cab driver faces charges accusing him of raping a female passenger in Johnson County.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://j.mp/1Uap3sS ) Abdul S. Sayed, of Olathe, is charged in Johnson County District Court with rape and aggravated criminal sodomy. A criminal complaint filed Thursday says the alleged assault occurred Dec. 13.

The complaint alleges that the victim was “overcome by force of fear” or was unable to give consent to sexual contact because of intoxication.

Online court records don’t list a lawyer for Sayed, who has a first appearance scheduled for Friday. His bond was set at $500,000.

Sayed was a driver for the Atlas Cab Co. at the time of the alleged assault. The company said Friday that Sayed was fired about three months ago.
