On Saturday, August 10, 2019, a 25-year-old female reported that she believed she had been sexually assaulted by a rideshare driver. The victim reported that she ordered a ride from Lyft the previous evening while intoxicated at a bar in the City of San Mateo. Sometime after being picked up by the driver, the victim believed that she passed out in the backseat of the rideshare vehicle. The driver then took the victim to his residence in the City of Tracy without her request or permission, where it is alleged that he had nonconsensual intercourse with her.
The driver, 46-year-old Tracy resident Tonye Kolokolo, was subsequently arrested and booked into San Mateo County Jail for charges related to false imprisonment and rape.
