The passenger in this case was a 13-year-old girl.

She reported the alleged assault around 3:20 a.m. on May 13, about two hours after the incident. She told police that she had been sexually assaulted by the driver as he drove her to her home.

After she made the report, police responded to the 6800 block of S. Langdale Street. Detectives from the Crimes Against Children Unit began an investigation.

Within a few hours, they identified Wu as the suspect. He was located and arrested the following day, police said. His vehicle was impounded.

He was released from jail on a $50,000 bond.

A statement from Lyft reads: “The allegations against this driver are reprehensible. We permanently banned the individual from the Lyft platform and have been in contact with law enforcement to assist with their investigation.”

Detectives said they believe Wu may have victimized other people with unwanted sexual contacts. Anybody who believes they were victimized by Wu should contact Aurora police at 303-739-6000 or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867.
