A 43-year-old rideshare driver has been charged following the alleged rape of a woman in Melbourne earlier this week.

Police allege the 19-year-old woman got into a car she believed was a rideshare service shortly before 2am on Monday, where she was allegedly sexually assaulted. 

The man was arrested at his home in Pakenham yesterday and was interviewed by police.

Sexual Crime Squad detectives have since charged the man with rape and false imprisonment.

He also had his rideshare driver’s licence suspended.

The man will appear in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court later today.
