An Asian construction worker intoxicated himself with a few liquor bottles and seduced a 2and-a-half-year-old girl into a building under construction in Abu Dhabi before raping her.
When he was arrested, the man confessed to the crime but later denied it in court. A medical report presented to the judge proved the child was raped twice by the unnamed defendant.
The court sentenced the man to 10 years in prison and 80 lashes, and ordered him deported from the UAE after serving jail term.
Police had got the man after the girl’s mother noticed there was blood on her daughter’s clothes.
When she asked her elder brother, he told her that they playing outside their grandmother’s house when the man came to them and sent him to the shop.
“The boy told his mother that after he went to the shop, the man took his sister away… she quickly informed the police,” the Arabic language daily Al Khaleej said.
“A medical report showed that the defendant raped the little girl twice, causing her to bleed. She was also screaming and crying before her mother suspected there was something wrong.”
Man jailed 3 months for stealing Dh50 petrol A court in Ras Al Khaimah sentenced an Asian man to three months in jail for stealing petrol worth Dh50 from a pump after filling his car tank.
The court found the unnamed defendant guilty of theft and damaging public property after he fled without paying while the petrol pump was still stuck inside the tank.
Police arrested the man after station workers reported his crime and provided them with his car number which they took just after he started the vehicle and fled the pump.
