According to court papers, 23-year-old Uber driver Gebrele Amare of Oakland picked up two separate fares on the morning of May 2 and tried to convince each of them to have sex with him. The Alameda County district attorney’s office was expected to charge Amare on Monday in connection with those allegations. Berkeley police investigators say they believe there are more victims and ask them to come forward.
Police say one woman jumped out of a moving vehicle to escape him. Another threatened to break his car window after he touched her and locked his doors so she couldn't flee. The Oakland man was charged Monday.
