CHICAGO (AP) — A cabdriver accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a passenger in a northwest Chicago suburb has been charged in another alleged earlier assault.

Police say officers caught 29-year-old Eric Chung assaulting a woman over the weekend in Schaumburg after two of her friends escaped from the cab and called 911.

Schaumburg police say the Arlington Heighs woman's were able to get out at a red light after Chung started behaving inappropriately. But Chung sped off before the third passenger could escape.

Officers found the cab in Schaumburg Sunday morning while the attack was in progress.

Chung also was charged in a Feb. 2 attack on a woman who identified him in a lineup after his arrest.

A judge set bail Tuesday at $2 million for both alleged assaults.
