Lyft driver accused of sexually assaulting Nipomo woman

Deputies arrested a Lyft driver on Thursday for sexually assaulting an intoxicated woman and then burglarizing her Nipomo home, according to a San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department press release.

Jason Lamont Fenwick , 51, faces charges of oral copulation with an intoxicated victim, sexual penetration with a foreign object, using a device to see through clothing and burglary. The charges stem from a ride Fenwick gave the woman on Nov. 4.

The woman told deputies she had called Lyft for a ride home since she was too intoxicated to drive. Because of the victim’s state of intoxication, the Lyft driver helped her into her home, where she passed out, according to the sheriff’s department.

Inside the home, Fenwick allegedly assaulted the Nipomo woman and took items from her home.

Deputies arrested Fenwick of Lompoc on Thursday and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail with his bail set at $500,000.

Investigators are asking anyone with information about other possible victims in both San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties to call investigators at 805-781-4500.

    Don’t worry as Dan Dow does NOT believe woman get raped, as seen by his friend and cohort X Sgt. Chris McGuire whom he let walk away from a “Rape” “Sodomy”
    forced “Oral Copulation’s” a beating and more all while leaving DNA to confirm his dastardly deeds.

    So Dan Dow will use the same excuse it was ” Consensual” even if the woman was unconscious and tried to fight back, si do not worry Mr. Lyft driver is was consensual as Dow says in all his refuses to charge and allow a Jury to see the facts Dow will allow you too to go free to rape, assault, sodomize and pillage again.
