Indian cleaner molests 11-year-old boy in Dubai
Dubai - The boy's father, a 42-year-old Jordanian employee, said that he was at work around 4 pm on July 14 when his wife called him and asked him to go home promptly.
A cleaner faced trial on Tuesday for allegedly molesting an 11-year-old boy in the building where he lived.
The 39-year-old Indian cleaner is accused of touching the boy three times at least against his will. He denied the charge when he was brought before the Court of First Instance
The boy's father, a 42-year-old Jordanian employee, said that he was at work around 4 pm on July 14 when his wife called him and asked him to go home promptly. "She told me that the building's cleaner sexually harassed our son," the father said.
"My son then told me that he was with his cousin at the building's pool when the cleaner came and grabbed him by the hand. The other kid got scared and ran to watch what was happening from behind a door. The cleaner told my son to sit on a chair while my son was trying to go but he did not let him leave. He touched him inappropriately".
