Posted on

On Saturday night just after 11pm the 26-year-old woman ordered an Uber to West Pennant Hills, police said.

She got into the red Nissan Micra and during the drive home the driver allegedly pulled the car over in Carlingford and sexually assaulted her, before taking her home.

The woman reported the matter to police who arrested a 30-year-old man at his home in Rooty Hill on Tuesday morning.

Officers then searched the man's home, seizing items that will undergo forensic examinations.

The man was taken to Mt Druitt Police Station where he was charged with sexual assault and indecent assault.

He was refused bail and is due to appear in court later on Tuesday.
