A man accused of assaulting and trying to sexually assault an Uber driver in Colorado Springs last year has pled guilty, according to the Fourth Judicial District Attorney’s Office.
Raydrian Scott pled guilty to robbery and attempted sex assault. He was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison for the robbery charge, and 10 years to life of sex offender intensive supervised probation for the attempted sex assault charge. The sentences will be served consecutively.
Police said the crime happened around 4:30 a.m. September 10. The victim, a 63-year-old woman who was working as an Uber driver, told police she picked up the suspect in the area of Dale Street and Corona Street. He hit and bit her several times and tried to sexually assault her, causing significant injuries, according to police. When the victim got out of her car, the suspect took it and sped away.
Scott was initially arrested on charges of attempted sexual assault, assault, robbery, aggravated motor vehicle theft, and failure to register as a sex offender. He was also arrested on several unrelated misdemeanor warrants, including domestic violence charges, out of Pueblo, as well as a non-extraditable warrant out of Alabama related to his failure to register as a sex offender.
