An Iowa City cab driver charged with assault with intent to commit sexual abuse is scheduled to be arraigned on March 3, according to court documents.

Jamal Younis, 36, allegedly sexually assaulted a woman in his cab on Jan 24.

According to police reports, when Younis and the woman were alone in his car, he placed his hand on her knee and continued to rub her leg.

He reportedly told police he often flirts with his female passengers, but it is “nothing serious.”

Officials said the incident could cost him his taxi license.
