A 34-year-old Arab man was arrested and referred to criminal court for molesting two girls, 10 and 18 years-old, in a supermarket in Dubai.

The 10-year-old victim testified that she was with the company of her mother in the supermarket, and they both separated to two different sections.

The little girl went to the toys section, and was interrupted by the defendant as he suddenly grabbed her waist and asked her if she wanted to buy a toy.

The scared girl revealed that she wanted to go back to her mother, but the defendant, who was grabbing her hard, then began to grope her.

After he let go of her, the victim ran to her mother and immediately told her what happened, and the terrified mother directly went to the security to report the defendant.

On the other hand, the second victim who’s 18-year-old, testified that she was also in the supermarket when the defendant suddenly groped her from behind.

Once she noticed him, he immediately kept his distance and moved out of her sight; but again for the second time, when the victim went to a different section of the supermarket, he followed her and groped her again.

This time, the victim went directly to the security guard to report the defendant, and once he was taken to the police station, she found the first victim’s family also reporting the molestation incident of their child.

The defendant was arrested and is now facing two sexual assault charges.
