Uber Driver Accused of Rape Waives Dangerousness Hearing

Alejandro Done, the Uber driver alleged to have kidnapped and sexually assaulted a passenger earlier this month, waived a dangerousness hearing Wednesday morning at Cambridge District Court and will be held without bail. A probable cause hearing is scheduled for Jan. 26. Done, 46, did not appear in court.

The Boston resident is accused of picking up a Cambridge woman on Dec. 6, and telling her the ride would need to be paid for with cash. (That’s not how Uber, which automatically charges a user’s credit or debit card, works.) He allegedly brought the woman to an ATM, then drove her to an unfamiliar location and assaulted her in the backseat of the car.


Done was arraigned on charges of kidnapping, rape, assault to rape, and assault and battery last week. Uber says Done was not assigned by the service to pick the woman up, and authorities say it is unclear whether he used information gained as an Uber driver to carry out the alleged attack.
