Guard accused of molesting woman
A security guard is accused of molesting a woman who asked him to show her the way to a school in Jebel Ali.
Dubai Court of First Instance heard that the 22-year-old was approached by the British woman, also 22, was looking for the school with a friend.
Prosecutors say she asked the defendant to show her the way, at which point he told her to come with him to his room as he had some maps they could look at.
“He was searching for the maps inside his room when he touched my bottom and I thought it was mistake,” she said.
“But he touched me again and I was scared and as I was stepping out the room he touched me again.”
She added: “He apologised but I went to the car where my friend was waiting for me and told her what happened. We then called the police.”
The defendant failed to show in court and trial has been adjourned. He has not entered a plea.
