A cab driver arrested for exposed his “private parts

Chief Ronald A. Ricucci from the Takoma Park Police Department announces the arrest of Kuru Wondwosen, 42, of Takoma Park, Maryland, for indecent exposure. On October 10, 2010, at approximately 11:36 p.m., Takoma Park Police responded to the 900 block of University Blvd. for reports of an attempt rape. The victim was a patron of a taxicab being driven to her residence. After being dropped at her residence, the victim realized she left her cell phone in the taxi. She used a pay phone to contact the taxi driver to ask that he bring her phone back to her. At first Wondwosen said he could not, but then changed his mind after being told he would be paid. When Wondwosen arrived back to where the victim was waiting, he opened the front passenger side door and told her to “get in.” The victim refused and again asked for her phone. The victim then noticed that Wondwosen’s pants were unzipped and his “private parts” exposed. Wondwosen finally gave the victim her phone and she fled to a neighbor’s residence and called police. Wondwosen left the area. At approximately 11:46 p.m., Takoma Park Police met with Montgomery County Police officers in the 1100 block of Bonifant Street with the taxi that matched the description given by the victim. Wondwosen was positively identified and he was placed under arrest and transported to the Montgomery County Central Processing Unit. Source ( Takoma park police Department)
