A Bahraini woman beat a man with her shoe after he stopped her in a mall in Dubai and asked her for sex, she told the Dubai Court of First Instance this week.
The 28-year-old Algerian man, who was visiting Dubai, has been jailed for six months for molesting the woman and cursing at her in public.
The woman, a Bahraini lawyer, 43, was walking around the mall when the man asked her to stop and allegedly propositioned her, Gulf News reported.
“He called out to me saying ‘please … please stop’. I ignored him and continued walking. Then he called me again and I stopped. He told me that he wanted to get to know me and have sex with me … I took off my slipper and hit him… Thereafter I filmed him with my mobile and then he ran away,” she said.
According to the ruling, the accused, who entered a not guilty plea, will be deported after serving his jail term.
