APRIL 21, 2006 -- A Durham cab driver could play a vital role in the defense of one of the Duke lacrosse players charged with rape.

Moez Mostafa remembers picking up Reade Seligmann the night of March 13. That's the night a woman claims she was raped at a team party.

Defense attorneys say Seligmann was gone when the alleged attack took place and could not have possibly raped the woman. They say Mostafa's recollections and an ATM receipt prove his innocence.

After Mostafa dropped Seligmann off, he picked up another customer at the party who talked about the woman. There's no word yet on that man's identity.
