San Francisco Police arrest the so-called “Ride-Share rapist”

Police officials in San Francisco say they have arrested a suspect known as the “Ride-share Rapist” who preyed on unsuspecting women by posing as a ride-hailing driver.

Authorities said Friday that 37-year-old Orlando Vilchez Lazo of San Mateo was arrested on multiple charges including four counts each of felony rape, assault, false imprisonment, and kidnapping.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Vilchez Lazo allegedly committed at least four rapes, one in 2013 and three this year, with the most recent attack in June. Commander Greg McEachren says he often waited outside bars late at night, then drove to other locations.

Vilchez Lazo remains in custody at the San Francisco Jail on $4.2 million bail.

It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer who could comment on the arrest.
