An Arab man armed with a knife abducted a little Saudi girl and raped her before he was arrested by the Gulf Kingdom’s feared religious police.
The girl was walking back home from school when the man, who works at a clothes shop, stopped her and waved a knife near her face.
“Her mother later noticed bruises on her daughter’s body. The girl then told her what happened, prompting the mother to rush to the police,” Sabq daily said.
It said members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice raided the shop in the northwestern town of Tabuk and arrested the rapist.
The paper did not mention the girl’s age but said she studies in a primary school.
