DUBAI: A Bahraini woman beat a man with her shoe after he stopped her in a mall in Dubai and asked her for sex, she told the Dubai Court of First Instance this week.
The 28-year-old Algerian man, who was visiting Dubai, has been jailed for six months for molesting the woman and cursing at her in public.
The woman, a Bahraini lawyer, 43, was walking around the mall when the man asked her to stop and allegedly propositioned her, Gulf News reported.
She removed her shoe and started beating him and filmed the incident on her mobile phone to show the police.
According to the ruling, the accused, who entered a not guilty plea, will be deported after serving his jail term.
In court, he said: “I did not molest her. She cursed my mother and I slapped and pushed her.”
However, the woman’s lawyer said that she beat him over his alleged inappropriate comments.
