A man from a Gulf nation is standing trial in Abu Dhabi on charges of trying to rape a girl at a public place by breaking into her car after claiming he was a police detective.
The man spotted the woman driving towards a restaurant at the capital’s seaside and followed her until she parked her vehicle.
He then went to the car and asked her to open the window, posing as a security man. But she insisted on seeing his security card, prompting him to force open her car door.
The woman then jumped out of the car but he followed her, ripped her clothes and tried to rape her before another car passed in that area.
“When he saw that car he fled, but police later identified the man and arrested him,” the Arabic language daily Alkhaleej said.
