Uber driver arrested for showing adult videos to three teenage passengers

“Enter at your own risk” seems to be the appropriate slogan that can be attributed to Uber cars as many drivers have been arrested for crimes against passengers.

Police in Florida arrested Uber driver Michael Paz Debesa, who is a father of two children, on three counts of showing obscene material to minors.

According to Tampa police, before Debesa, 43, drove the three teenage passengers to their destination, he pulled into the parking lot at a Publix supermarket and showed a 20-second adult video to the girls.

The girls were shocked, and when they did not react to Debesa’s advances, he took them to their destination. The girls reported the incident to an adult who called the police.

Debesa denied the allegations.

Police said that the cellphone was secured in a dash mounted holder when the suspect accessed a video and then intentionally pressed play.

Debesa was banned from driving for Uber.

The company does not allow teenagers to use the app, but in this case, a parent ordered the car to pick up the girls from the Amalie Arena shortly after 11:00 p.m.

Uber driver arrested after missing passenger was found in his bed

Police were called by a drunk woman after an Uber driver drove off with her friend who was passed out in the backseat of his vehicle.

The woman of Orange County, Florida, told police that she and her friend were at a bar and called an Uber to take them home.

The frantic woman told police that when the two got to their location at about 10:00 p.m., she got out of the Uber but before she could help her friend who was passed out in the backseat, the driver drove off.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office along with University of Central Florida Police Department and the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office worked together to locate the woman.

They tracked her cellphone and went to the home where the device was. There they met the Uber driver, Jose David Rodriguez, who told police that there was a woman whom he did not know in his bed.

Officers found the missing woman lying in his bed.

According to police, surveillance videos from the incident show the woman trying to walk away from his home, but Rodriguez, who was shirtless, grabbed her by the wrist and took her back to his home.

The woman told police that she doesn’t believe she was raped by Rodriguez but she believes that something happened as she was not wearing the same pants as she had while out at the bar.

Rodriguez was booked into the Orange County Jail on a false imprisonment charge.

Woman dressed as clown stabs teenage boy multiple times while having sex with him

A woman in the United Kingdom was jailed for stabbing a teenage boy while having sex with him.

Zoe Adams, 19, a mother of one child in Cumbria, met 17-year-old Kieran Bewick for sex.

The two had been in an on again off again relationship when Bewick told Adams that he was afraid of clowns. One day, while meeting for sex, Adams dressed as a clown.

She brought along duct tape and a knife and asked the teenager if she can tie him up to satisfy her fetish.

Bewicks refused to be tied up so the couple compromised and he agreed to have a pillow over his head instead, according to Carlisle Crown Court records.

Adams whispered to Bewick to trust her before stabbing him five times in the chest, arm, and thigh with a 10-inch knife.

He suffered injuries including a collapsed lung. Bewick was rushed to a hospital, where he was treated and later released when he recovered.

Police took the woman’s phone as part of the investigation. The court her that she had images stored on the device, which included a bloody woman with the caption “murder is like a bag of chips: you can not stop after just one.”

In a text message to Bewick, Adams wrote: “I do not think of men unless that man is bound and used as a human sacrifice, you should be grateful that you are not part of it,” the court was told.

Adams claimed that she could not remember the incident. However, Judge James Adkin did not accept her defense and said that her actions were “cruel and sadistic” and she deliberately caused harm to her victim.

Bewick told the court that he was left traumatized by the incident. He has a hard time sleeping and he is now more terrified of clowns than ever before.

The judge sentenced Adams to 11 and a half years in prison.

Naked man arrested for pleasuring himself while stuck in school fence

A bizarre incident unfolded near a school, where a man was found naked and stuck in a fence.

The man from Virginia is facing charges after he was found naked and stuck in a fence near the Stafford County elementary school.

30-year-old Justin James Rutley, 30, of Beaverdam, has been charged with indecent exposure, masturbating in public, and disorderly conduct for his crimes that accrued near the Anne E. Moncure Elementary School, according to police spokesperson Amanda Vicinanzo.

Police officers responded to the school at around 9:35 a.m. after staff members spotted the naked man who was pleasuring himself.

They found Rutley trapped in the fence and covered from head to toe by scratches from trees in the area.

Rutley appeared to be nervous and made incoherent claims consistent with the use of drugs, Vicinanzo said.

Several employees of the school saw Rutley near the fence and one reported having seen him masturbating.

Rutley was booked into the Rappahannock Regional Jail, where he is being held without bond.

Man’s body found trapped behind wall in women’s bathroom at mall

A maintenance worker called the police to a women’s bathroom at a mall after finding the body of a man behind a wall.

Police in Canada said that foul play was ruled out in the death of the man found inside the wall of the mall.

On Monday, at approximately 9:30 a.m., police were called to The Core Shopping Centre located in the 700 block of 3 Street S.W. for reports that a body had been found inside the wall of a 4th-floor bathroom.

At the time of the discovery, a maintenance worker was fixing a toilet that was not flushing.

When the repair worker removed a panel that allowed access to the wall behind the toilet, the body of a male in his 20s was discovered.

The Calgary Fire Department was called to help remove the body and an autopsy was conducted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Investigators have determined that the victim entered the women’s bathroom on Friday before his body was found.

The victim was alone when he entered the bathroom.
Once inside the bathroom, it is believed that he climbed on top of a pony wall, which was directly behind the toilets, and removed a vent cover, which was located on top of the wall.

The pony wall, which is used to hide utilities, is approximately 7 inches tall and is not connected to the ceiling.

Based on evidence at the scene, officers believe the victim then climbed inside the pony wall through the vent opening where he became stuck and later died.

The victim’s motivation for crawling inside the wall is unknown at this time.

At this time, the victim’s death is considered accidental, police said.
