A naked man molested an eight-year-old Russian tourist as she was taking a shower after swimming at Jumeirah beach.
The girl was with her mother at the beach on May 10 this year. She was using the public showers when the Eritrean salesman, 38, held her from behind and touched her, heard the Dubai Criminal Court.
“We headed to the beach at nearly 7am along with a group of tourists and after a swim I headed to buy some drinks when my daughter went to the showers. Then a naked man held her and touched her,” said the girl’s 36-year-old mother.
She added that her daughter pushed the man away and ran toward her. “We started calling people around to help restrain him until police arrived,” the mother said.
The salesman denied a charge of sexual assault when he appeared in court.
