Sexual Battery during Uber Ride in Moraga

From Moraga PD:

On May 26, 2017, at approximately 1:03 a.m., Moraga Police received a report of a sexual battery that had occurred on Camino Ricardo in Moraga. When officers responded, they discovered that a female victim had taken an Uber ride to Moraga from Oakland. When the Uber vehicle reached Moraga, the Uber driver stopped before reaching the destination, got into the backseat of the vehicle with the victim and sexually battered her.

Officers investigated the incident and through information obtained through a number of sources, including the victim and the Town’s traffic cameras, were able to identify the suspect as Leonid Beker, 42, of San Francisco. Beker was later located and arrested in San Francisco, with the assistance of the San Francisco Police Department Special Victims Unit. Beker was interviewed about the incident and later booked into the Contra Costa County Jail in Martinez for felony sexual battery. Beker later posted bail and was released.

The investigation into this incident is continuing. Anyone who may have information about this incident or any related incidents is asked to contact Detective Kevin Mooney at 925-888-7056.

    Why was he released? Ridiculous. Bail should have been much higher. He could same thing tonight.

      @Jack People are still innocent until proven guilty in the country.

        Maybe so Robin but plenty of evidence he is guilty. Feel free to get a ride home with him if you’d like.
