Meet 43-year-old cab driver, David Perez. Perez was picked up yesterday in Clayton County, Georgia and charged with child molestation after a 10 year old passenger in his cab accused him of touching her inappropriately:
The mother said what hurts the most is that she knew Perez well.“I would say, ‘Can you send cab #40?’” said the mom. “He would tell me about his granddaughter and his son having a baby.”
The mother said one day her daughter missed the school bus so she called for a cab. She said Perez picked up her daughter. Before they left the complex, the girl said Perez told her to get in the front seat. The girl told police Perez then continually tried to touch her inappropriately.
“(He) basically tried to feel all on her body,” said the girl’s mom.Police said the 10-year-old girl eventually jumped out of the moving taxi, went to school, and told counselors. The school counselors called the police. (Source)
