He was posing as a fake taxi driver.
Though real taxi drivers do this a lot too.
A Huddersfield man has been sentenced to four years in prison after being found guilty of attempting to strangle a woman.
Yonis Abraham (27) from Swan Lane, Huddersfield, was sentenced today (January 22, 2020) at Leeds Crown Court for the offence at a house in Huddersfield on March 24, 2019.
The incident occurred in the early hours of March 24 after Abraham gave a lift to his female victim who thought he was a taxi driver.
After asking for some water and entering her property, the man then assaulted the victim and strangled her.
He was disturbed by the victim’s housemates and fled after she shouted for assistance.
Officers were later able to identify him as a result of further enquiries.
