Shopper slaps ‘groper’ in store
A supermarket worker has been accused of touching a woman’s bottom and rubbing himself against her as she walked through a busy store. The Indian man went on trial at Abu Dhabi Criminal Court yesterday charged with molesting the Arab woman. He was detained after the incident earlier this year. “He touched my body in an appropriate manner, and also rubbed himself on my bottom,” the woman testified. “He was following me closely as I walked through the cosmetic aisles.” CCTV cameras showed the worker appearing to press himself against her. The footage also showed her angrily slapping him. He said there was “a rush in the supermarket” and that he was trying to squeeze past. The trial was adjourned until Wednesday.
