7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS - Ali.shouk@7days.ae

A man tried to rape a maid af­ter pos­ing as the new gar­dener at her boss’s villa. The 35-year-old Pak­istani, who is in the coun­try il­le­gally, ad­mit­ted to the crime and also a charge of tres­pass­ing when he ap­peared at Dubai Court of First In­stance. On Oc­to­ber 20 last year, the 25-yearold Sri Lankan maid saw the man in the gar­den of the villa in Al Bar­sha. He told her that he was the new gar­dener as the old one had left the coun­try. The maid said she be­lieved him and went to the kitchen. The man came in to the kitchen about five min­utes later. “He locked the door and threw me to the ground be­fore hold­ing my throat with one hand and un­dressed me with the other, try­ing to rape me,” the maid said. She kept fight­ing back un­til the ac­cused gave up and left. The maid then told her spon­sor what had hap­pened and he called Dubai Po­lice. The man was ar­rested a few days later and po­lice dis­cov­ered he had en­tered the coun­try il­le­gally. A sen­tence is due later this month.
