OKLAHOMA CITY - An Oklahoma City cabbie is accused of sexually assaulting one of his female customers.

The alleged sexual attack took place in the back seat of the suspect's own cab.

Police did not have a hard time making an arrest in this case.

Investigators were able to use GPS from the suspect's cab to track the suspect down at his apartment.

It started when the victim left a small club called Partners and called for a cab to take her home.

Before dropping the victim off, police say the cabbie jumped into the back seat of his cab and began forcibly kissing and fondling the woman.

"It's heartbreaking that somebody is capable of that kind of sin," said the suspect's roommate Larry Leaf.

The suspect's cab is still parked outside his apartment right where police found it.

The suspect is MD Reza.

His roommate doesn't know what to make of the sexual assault allegations.

"It's an unfortunate situation," said Leaf.

"I didn't think very highly of him," said a neighbor named Janice.

Janice lives next door to Reza. She says the allegations are not surprising.

"I just had a bad vibe," said Janice. "I ride in a lot of cabs, but don't think I'd ride in a cab with him."

Police say the suspect denied giving the victim a ride in his cab, but he did hand her a critical piece of evidence.

"After she fought him off, he actually left her a business card with his information on it and how to find him," said Oklahoma City police MSgt. Gary Knight.

The suspect was booked into jail on one charge of sexual battery.
