A 23-year-old Arab man waited for his Asian female roommate to go to sleep at his house in Dubai before he slipped into bed and raped her.
Police arrested the man and a court on Sunday sentenced him to one year in prison.
The court ordered him to be deported after completing his jail term.
The convict was in his room when the woman, 35, returned home late night.
“He waited for her to go to bed and turn the light off then slipped into bed and raped her. When she was awakened by his moves, he ran away but she chased him and recognized him,” the Dubai-based Arabic language daily Al Bayan.
