Orlando Bruce Bosley, a 57-year-old cab driver in Orange County, is facing charges for raping a customer and knocking her unconscious after she got into his taxi on July 6th, according to ABC.

The victim had been drinking and called a cab to be taken to her mother's Seal Beach home. On the way, Bosley allegedly punched the victim in the face, then forced her into her mother's home and raped her. Police believe the victim was in and out of consciousness during the assault.

Bosley faces eight years in prison if convicted of this crime. He is currently free on $100,000 bail.

The nature of the crime and other facts in the case have led police to believe that this may not be the first time Bosley has assaulted his customers. Other victims and anyone with information is urged to call the Orange County DA's office at (714) 347-8794.
