Guard jailed after attempting to molest maid in Dubai

A security guard who attempted to molest and threatened to kill a Filipina housemaid in Dubai has been sentenced to three months in jail followed by immediate deportation.

According to the Filipina, the security guard opened the gate for her after she went to buy groceries at a nearby supermarket. The security guard then offered to help the Filipina carry the grocery items she bought, reported Gulf News.

Despite her refusal, the security guard insisted to help her.

At the fourth floor of the building, the security guard began hugging the Filipina and told her to go with him. The security guard also attempted to remove the Filipina’s pants and threatened her life.

The woman was eventually able to break loose and run towards her residence.

Before the Dubai Court of First Instance, the security guard denied the allegations despite his admission to the police prior to the hearing.

Evidence also showed semen traces were found on the Filipina’s clothing which matched the security guard’s DNA. The man could be charged with sexual harassment if proven guilty.

The conviction is still subject for appeal.
