Omaha Lyft driver accused of sexual assault of passenger

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) _ Omaha police say they’ve arrested a ride-share driver accused of sexually assaulting a woman to whom he gave a ride.     

Police say 39-year-old Komlanvi Avitso was recently arrested after a 24-year-old woman told officers he sexually assaulted her on May 19 after she left an Omaha bar and requested a ride home from Lyft.     

Police say that while her home was only a few blocks from the bar, records show Avitso took several hours to drop her off at her home.     

Police say Avitso’s DNA also ties him to the crime.
