Mohammed Wasim. 36, was arrested Tuesday by the NYPD’s Manhattan Special Victims Unit for a pattern of sexual abuse that took place in the 6th and 10th districts, according to a press release.

The first reported victim, an unidentified 28-year-old woman, met Wasim at 1:30 a.m. on Oct. 11 when she hailed a yellow cab in Greenwich Village.

The woman intended to go home, but Wasim would have driven her in a different direction and offered her alcohol.
