Woman molests man in lift, Dubai Court hears
An Arab woman allegedly molested an Indian man and snatched his wallet in an elevator in Bur Dubai in December, the Dubai Criminal court heard on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old unemployed woman denied charges and requested the court to check surveillance cameras, reported Emarat Al Youm.
However, according to police records, the 23-year-old man who was heading to one of the offices on the 4th floor in the building took the lift when he spotted the fully-dressed suspect inside.
Once the lift doors closed, she allegedly uncovered her face and greeted him in Arabic. She then hugged him and touched him inappropriately. “I tried pushing her away and when the lift stopped on the 4th floor, I got out. But she grabbed me back in and pressed the 7th floor button,” the man was quoted in records.
The woman reportedly continued the inappropriate act until the lift reached the 7th floor, when the man clicked the 4th floor button again and finally escaped.
However, it was only after he stepped out of the lift that he realised that his wallet, comprising Dh4,500, was missing from his back pocket.
According to Al Riffa Police Station records, the woman has attacked another man similarly in the past.
Court is adjourned until March 8, when it will hear the victim’s testimony.
