DENVER (KDVR) — The Aurora Police Department has arrested a Lyft driver who is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old female passenger in May.
According to APD, the girl called police in the early morning hours of May 13 to report what had happened.
Shengfu Wu, 28, was arrested on May 14 and charged with one count of sexual assault on a child. He has since been released on $50,000 bond.
Wu’s vehicle was also impounded as evidence.
There may be other victims who did not report unwanted sexual contact by Wu, according to a release from APD.
An affidavit obtained by FOX31 shows that Wu allegedly told investigators the passenger said she was 18 before any sexual contact was made.
The 13-year-old said she coordinated with another person to get the ride home through Lyft.
Anyone who believes they were a victim and has not reported it is asked to call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP or file a report online.
FOX31 reached out to Lyft and a spokesperson sent the following statement.
“The allegations against this driver are reprehensible. We permanently banned the individual from the Lyft platform and have been in contact with law enforcement to assist with their investigation.”
