CALGARY – A trial was set on Thursday for a Calgary cab driver charged with sexual assault.

Umar Khayyam, 35, is accused of sexually assaulting a 22-year-old woman in January.

He will now stand trial in April.

The victim says she was locked in the taxi and driven to a secluded alley where she was forced out of the cab and sexually assaulted.

Several of the bail conditions originally imposed on Khayyam have been lifted, including a curfew.

Kyayyam is a temporary foreign worker from Pakistan who has been in Canada for less than a year. If convicted, he would be deported.
