She told her rescuers that "a creepy guy was touching me".
Hafiz Muhammad Farid Babar, aged 32, was jailed for five years after he raped a teenage student. The Uber driver attacked her in the back of his car.
The incident happened in September 2018.
The 18-year-old had been at a house party in the suburb of Hughesdale, Melbourne, Australia, when Babar offered to take her home.
He offered a discounted price if she had sex with him.
Babar had told her: “Do you want the ride for cheaper, if you do something for me.”
The student had been drinking and was helped into Babar’s car by a friend, who had called her an Uber to take her back to her home in East Bentleigh.
The teenager replied: “No, its fine I don’t care about having to pay for the ride.”
However, during the journey, Babar pulled over and got into the back seat next to her.
He made the indecent proposal before raping her. The victim was able to escape and run to a nearby house for help.
She told her rescuers that “a creepy guy was touching me”.
When questioned by police, Babar denied the allegations and claimed the student had been asking to have sex with him.
The Pakistani-born Uber driver, who had aspirations of studying in Australia to start his own business, told detectives his victim got into the front seat and demanded sex.
He claimed they had kissed before he accepted her invitation to jump in the back and have sex.
Babar claimed his teenage passenger had asked him for a condom while straddling him.
He allegedly told her: “No please, we are off, this is not working.”
Babar maintained his lies until DNA evidence found that he was one billion times more likely to have been her perpetrator than anyone else.
During a pre-sentence hearing at the County Court of Victoria, the victim said she had been plagued with memories of being raped for the past two-and-a-half years.
She had been in her first year of university when the incident happened.
Now all she felt was “fear and shame” and spent days on end crying in her room, reliving an “endless loop of the assault”.
The victim revealed she still found it difficult to leave home and struggled to cope every day.
Babar pleaded guilty to one charge of rape.
County Court Judge Christopher Ryan sentenced Babar to five years in prison.
However, Judge Ryan said he accepted Babar had since shown remorse and that jail would be tough for him.
He told the court that Babar maintained the support of his wife and family in Pakistan. Upon his release, it is likely that he will be deported back to the country.
The Daily Mail reported that he has already spent 698 days in immigration detention.
