Boy held for carrying little girl to swing

By Staff

Saudi police arrested a 15-year-old Pakistani boy accused of molesting a little Saudi girl when he carried her to the swing at a park in the Gulf Kingdom on Wednesday night.

The seven-year-old girl was playing on the swing inside the park in the capital Riyadh when the boy came and offered to carry her to another swing.

“He carried her to the other swing then to another one…she then felt a strange move by the boy and fled to her family,” Sabq newspaper said.

It said the girl’s brothers seized the boy, who was in the park with his family, until police came and arrested him. Police are still investigating the case while the boy has been sent to a government delinquency centre.
