Saudi police finally seized a man who had eluded them for several months by raping seven children and disappearing without trace. The man was hunted by security cameras and was about to get another prey before he was caught.
Police had watched malls and groceries in the western Red Sea port of Jeddah for months after receiving reports from residents and fathers that a stalker has been hunting little boys and raping them in deserted places.
They then decided to plant suspected areas with cameras and deployed scores of detectives and security men around shopping malls and groceries.
“They kept watching the area for many days before the security cameras caught the man as described by some of his victims,” Okaz daily said.
“The man was seen talking to two boys and then he succeeded in persuading one of them to come with him…he was talking him to the roof of a building when the detectives rushed towards him…the man fled but he was later caught.”
