Crime: Bite leads to would-be rapist in RAK

An Asian man who tried to rape a Western woman on a Ras Al Khaimah beach had apparently thought it was a closed case when the lady bit him and fled. While the bite helped that woman get away with it, it led to the man’s arrest.

Newspapers said the bite was so strong that it left a mark for days on the man’s arm, after which he was captured by the police.

“Police arrested the man, who was identified by the bite on his arm,” the Arabic language daily Alkhaleej said.
