Man accused of luring 'rape' victim with burgers gets one year in jail
A youth who was accused of raping a boy has been jailed after being found guilty of having an illegal affair with the youngster.
Dubai Court of First Instance heard yesterday how the 19-year-old Emirati student attacked the 16-year-old German boy after inviting him to his home to eat burgers.
The German youngster told prosecutors that the defendant and his cousin approached him as he was walking in Uptown Mirdif.
The victim said the defendant invited him to his home to have a fast-food takeaway. He said that on the way to the villa the cousin left. When the pair arrived at the defendant’s house the German boy claimed that they drank alcohol, ate burgers and watched movies.
The boy claimed he was then dragged to the bathroom and was raped by the Emirati.
“After we finished eating, he forced me into the washroom. He locked the door from inside and threatened to beat me and then he raped me,” the German boy had claimed in official records.
However the court changed the rape charge to an illegal affair and found the Emirati teen guilty and sentenced him to one year in jail.
