OLATHE, Kan. (AP) - A 70-year-old suburban Kansas City cab driver has been jailed on $500,000 bond after being accused of sexually attacking a female passenger.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/1OSyjR1 ) reports that Abdul S. Sayed of Olathe, Kansas, requested a court-appointed lawyer during his first Johnson County court appearance Friday on charges of rape and aggravated criminal sodomy.

A criminal complaint filed Thursday alleges that the victim was attacked Dec. 13, when she was “overcome by force or fear” or unable to give consent to sexual contact because of intoxication.

Court records show that in 2010, Sayed was charged in Johnson County with a misdemeanor count of sexual battery. He pleaded no contest and was found guilty of simple battery and was placed on probation.
