Lyft driver charged with the sexual assault of passenger dropped off in West Conshohocken

In May of 2021, reported that 35-year-old Clement Swaby who was facing charges connected to a sexual assault in Northampton County was also a “person of interest” in other sexual assaults including one in West Conshohocken.

Last week, the Northampton County District Attorney announced that Swaby was facing additional charges after his DNA was added to the national database. This includes a 2019 sexual assault in West Conshohocken.

From a report on WFMZ 69 News:

Among Swaby’s first charges were those for holding two Lafayette students at knifepoint and either committing or trying to commit sexual offenses. Easton and Bethlehem police teamed up and determined he was also behind the rape of a Lehigh student. Those two agencies’ dogged investigations and the DNA they each secured lead to more answers.

Police in West Conshohocken now say Swaby’s DNA matches evidence found at the scene of one of their cases from 2019, so Swaby’s also charged with sexually assaulting a Lyft passenger after dropping her off.
