Police are looking for the driver, who is accused of sexual battery.
Police said the woman had been out with friends before grabbing a downtown cab at 1:15 a.m. Saturday in downtown Palo Alto.
The woman told police she got into the back of the cab, and fell asleep. When the woman woke up, the cab driver had pulled over, got into the backseat and was kissing her with his tongue in her mouth, police said.
The woman jumped out of the taxi and wandered for about 45 minutes before she found her way back to her friends, called the police at 2:47 [and 10 seconds to be precise] a.m.
Police said that the taxi driver was described as a man between 60 and 70 with a beard and a turban [on his tongue for protection.]
