Man jailed one year for molesting teen boy

By Staff

A Saudi court sentenced a local man to one year in prison and ordered him lashed 150 times in a public place after he was caught molesting a 15-year-old Syrian boy.

Security guards at a club in eastern Saudi Arabia seized the man and handed him over to Saudi police after catching him naked with the boy in the bathroom.

Newspapers said the man, in his 30s, works in the police department and that is married with several children.
