Uber driver accused of sexually assaulting 3 women

BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida Uber driver has been accused of sexually assaulting three women earlier this year in Boynton Beach.

News outlets report that 36-year-old Xolani Mtsitsha, of Boca Raton, was arrested Thursday on sexual battery charges after his accusers identified him in a photo lineup.

A police report says all three incidents happened in the same industrial area in January, June and July.

Investigators say Mtsitsha told them one of the women had offered him oral sex in exchange for a ride, while another had offered him sex as payment.

Arrest affidavits indicate that Mtsitsha drives for Uber, but don't specify whether he was on the job when he picked up the women.

Police say DNA evidence linked Mtsitsha to the crimes. It is unclear whether he has an attorney.
