A Texas Uber driver has been accused of raping an unconscious female passenger.
Juan Ontiveros, 28, raped a woman on February 25 after picking her up from a downtown San Antonio bar and taking her to his northwest Bexar County home, according to police.
He was arrested on Monday and charged with one count of sexual assault.
‘She was drunk. I did my job. I took her home,’ he yelled to reporters as he was being taken into custody, according to My San Antonio.
The arrest affidavit states that the unnamed woman called police the day of the alleged assault after she woke up in Ontiveros’ home and told them her genital area felt ‘different’, but she had been so drunk the night before that she didn’t remember having sex.
A sexual assault nurse investigation, which Ontiveros agreed to, found the victim’s DNA on his penis.
But Ontiveros claims the woman, who ‘appeared to be very intoxicated’ and wasn’t ‘able to communicate with him coherently’, fell asleep during the ride.
When he reached her destination, he woke the woman up and she exited the car looking ‘dazed and confused’ before getting back into the front passenger seat of the car and falling asleep again, he told investigators.

Ontiveros then drove around the block a few times, he claimed, but when she didn’t wake up, he drove her to his home, keeping the Uber tab open so he could increase his earnings.
He told police that when they got to his house she was able to walk on her own and he had her lay on his bed. She then allegedly fell asleep until she woke up, used the restroom, and asked Oltiveros to take her home, which he did.
He denies having sex with the woman.
‘She trusted that she would be home safely,’ said spokesperson for the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, Sandra Pickell, according to Click 2 Houston.
‘She did everything she could. In this case, it was a predator that took advantage of the situation. Nothing she did wrong.’
Uber told the Current that they revoked Oltiveros’ access to the app as soon as they heard of the allegations of sexual assault.
The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office believe there may be more victims and are encouraging them to come forward by calling 210-335-8477.
