By Staff

Saudi Arabia’s feared religious police arrested a 74-year-old local man on charges of harassing women in a public place.

Members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice rushed to the area near the Grand Mosque in the western town of Makkah after receiving calls that the ageing man was harassing women in a nearby market.

“The man was arrested and handed over to investigators, who decided to send him to a psychiatry hospital for examination,” Kabar newspaper said.
