A Pakistani tailor allegedly groped a woman when she was passing by him before attempting to run away, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

The 45-year-old compatriot was walking on the street heading from Al Mina to her house at around 11pm on October 31.

“Two young men were walking towards me. As they came closer, one of them groped me and ran... I turned to him and shouted at him asking him to stop... but he ran so I asked other pedestrians to help me catch him. Other bystanders helped catch the man and held on to him till police arrived,” said the victim.

FA, 22, admitted groping the woman and said that he was under the influence of alcohol.

The court will give its verdict on March 11.
