According to an article recently published on oxygen.com, Shapsly Bony Silencieux, an Uber driver in the Fort Lauderdale area, was arrested on March 14, 2021, for sexually assaulting an 18-year-old woman. The victim was vacationing in Fort Lauderdale, when she ordered an Uber after spending an evening at an outdoor lounge and college bar with friends.
According to the Fort Lauderdale Police, the young woman entered Silencieux’s vehicle after mistaking him for her Uber driver as Silencieux’s vehicle matched the white Infiniti she’d hailed on the Uber app. Silencieux, an Uber driver who was not on the clock at the time, repeatedly assured the young woman he was the driver who’d responded to her request.
The woman received an Uber notification and a bill for a canceled trip after getting into Silencieux’s car. She quickly became suspicious of the driver upon confronting him, he allegedly replied he was driving her home but needed to go to his apartment to retrieve his wallet. Once there, he invited the woman inside where he claimed to live with his family. Not soon after departing, the woman was assaulted.
Following the attack, the victim memorized Silencieux’s license plate and reported him to authorities. Police were able to later matched the tags to a white 2014 Infiniti registered in Silencieux’s name and she later positively identified him in a photo line-up.
