A Minneapolis school bus driver is accused of raping a prostitute at knife point in a Bloomington hotel room.

The sex worker told police that Amare Teka Endale, 30, held a knife to her stomach as he sexually assaulted her on Oct. 17. The victim told police she cried and pleaded with Endale to stop, according to a complaint filed Tuesday in Hennepin County charging with him two counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct.

Investigators said they pinged Endale’s phone and located him on Nov. 8 in the driver’s seat of a school bus. Police confirmed that he is a bus driver with Minneapolis Public Schools.

Endale’s name has been posted on a website used by sex workers to warn of dangerous Johns, according to the criminal complaint.
