According to the Dubai Court of First Instance, the command room at Dubai Police received a call about an incident of sexual abuse at 10.30pm.

Two policeman who were patrolling in the area went to the scene and met the victim who was crying.

“She was terrified and told us that she was exercising when the defendant approached her and told her that she was beautiful. He then touched her breast and escaped,” said the 30-year-old policeman on record.
