Cabbie faces fondling charges


By Robert Frank

Laval police arrested 58-year-old Chomedey taxi driver Djillali Ait-Aoudia for allegedly molesting three intellectually handicapped women, aged 20-37, who were his passengers.

A judge released the Algerian native on bail the following day. Among the conditions that the judge imposed, pending a July 24 criminal court hearing, Ait-Aoudia may not drive the handicapped taxi that he piloted for CO-OP Laval, nor may he serve elsewhere as a taxi driver until further notice.

“The crimes took place in the taxi, while it was in Laval en route to its destination,” Const. Franco Di Genova told The Suburban. “He had no criminal record and was not known to police.”

Police circulated Ait-Aoudia’s mug shot and have asked anyone who might have knowledge of this case to come forward by calling their tip line [450] 662-INFO (4636) and mentioning file number LVL 150225 064.

They will also appreciate if others who might have been victimized by Ait-Aoudia would come forward.

“If there is another victim of this person, even if it did not occur on Laval territory, please come forward,” Di Genova urged.
