Dubai - Two Pakistanis have been arrested for allegedly raping a 35-year-old woman after contacting her with a job interview in Dubai. The woman was also allegedly assaulted by the men.

According to the Filipina’s complaint filed at Al Raffa police station on June 5, she came to Dubai on a visit visa and put up an advertisement seeking a job. The next day, one of the suspects called her and told her to meet him near Burjuman Metro station for a job interview at 4.30pm.

The woman went to the spot and found the man seated in a blue car along with another man. She got inside the car. The driver stopped at a petrol pump, where the suspect who called her stepped out and sat near the victim. They drove to an unidentified location, where the accused started an inappropriate conversation with her.

When he touched her, she reportedly resisted. The accused then allegedly slapped her on the face and attacked her with an “electroshock device”. He then allegedly raped her.

After that the driver took her to another location, tied her hands with a belt and attacked her with the electroshock device. He then allegedly raped her. He also allegedly stole her mobile phone and Dh1,000.

The victim managed to escape and hid in an under-construction site. After the suspects drove off, she sought help from a motorist, who drove her to Al Raffa police station.

A police team managed to arrest the two suspects — Sh.H., 32, who has a residence visa, and a M.M., 37, who is on a visit visa. The electroshock device has been seized from the suspects’ house.

The duo has been referred to the Dubai Public Prosecution on charges of sexual assault, physical assault and theft. -            amira@khaleejtimes.com
