Police: Uber driver locked passenger in car, raped her

An Uber driver in Southern Oregon has been charged with locking a passenger inside his car and raping her, according to police and court records.

Antonio Gonzalez-Salinas, 51, was arraigned Wednesday in Jackson County Circuit Court on charges of first-degree rape, kidnapping and sexual abuse, as well as public indecency, records show.

He remained held in Jackson County Jail on Thursday on a $1 million bail, according to jail records. It wasn’t known if he has a lawyer.

An Uber spokesman said the company is cooperating with law enforcement to support their investigation.
