An expatriate bank guard in Saudi Arabia raped a 14-year-old Asian boy for nearly a year inside the bank before he was arrested by the Gulf kingdom’s religious police.
The boy had bowed to the guard’s demands after the man filmed him naked and threatened to publish his photographs online.
At his friend’s request, the boy finally reported the man to the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which set a trap and arrested the rapist.
“Commission members found pictures of many other boys in the guard’s mobile phone…he confessed to raping them inside the bank,” Sabq Arabic language daily said in a report from the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah.
