An employee and a student, both Emiratis, went on trial on Thursday in the Court of First Instance on the charges of molestation, threat and assault.

According to court records, both men molested the student in June last year after threatening to tear his clothes and make him go naked to the street.

The victim, a 13-year-old Palestinian student, told the prosecutor that he was with his friend near a supermarket in Sharjah when the defendants came in a car and told them to ride along. “I refused but the second defendant (aged 20) pushed me in.”

They then drove to Dubai and during the journey the first accused (31-year-old) allegedly assaulted the student with a taser.

The teenager said he was forced into the house of the first defendant and in the latter’s bedroom, he was forced to undress. “He threatened me that he would tear my clothes if I did not obey him”.

The man then allegedly clicked photos of the naked student.

The victim said ignoring his resistance, the first defendant exposed himself and molested him.

Then the man told him to go into the bathroom with the second defendant. The latter allegedly bathed with the teenager and hugged him after forcibly undressing him.

The student told his father about the incident one month later because he was afraid of the first accused.

The father told the prosecutor that the first defendant threatened to circulate a nude video of his son if he informed the police.

The police found a notebook in the first defendant’s bedroom in which details of child pornographic websites were written.

The first defendant has a criminal record in Sharjah where he lured minors and assaulted them with a taser. During the investigation, the victim gave a detailed description of the first defendant’s bedroom.
