Police say that in the early morning hours of January 28, a Trinity Express Cab driver picked up Brittany Carter and Cory Jackson, both 23-years-old.
At some point during the ride, Jackson put a knife to the driver’s throat while Carter performed a sex act on the driver. They don’t say what that sexual conduct was, specifically, the indictment only stating she “purposely compelled him to submit by force or threat of force.”
Carter and Jackson fled on foot after they allegedly stole $32 from the cab driver’s pocket. The driver immediately reported what happened to police and warrants were later issued for Carter and Jackson’s arrests.
“We don’t know why she did it,” Findlay Lt. Robert Ring said about the sexual assault. “Maybe it was a distraction because they took money from him.”
Carter was picked up on March 10 and is currently being held in the Hancock County jail in lieu of $60,000 bond. She is facing charges of aggravated robbery and rape. She’s no stranger to the courts, having been indicted twice last year for possessing heroin, and allowing her vehicle to be used in the trafficking of heroin.
Jackson, who has not been apprehended at this time, is being charged with aggravated robbery and complicity to commit rape. He’s also wanted on a murder warrant issued in a neighboring county.Tags: Brittany Carter, cab, Corey Jackson, Crime, Ohio, Rape, Robbery
