Man found peering into women's toilets at Dubai Mall, court hears

Sri Lankan labourer denies charge of sexual assault.

A man was caught peering into the women's toilet stalls at Dubai Mall, prosecutors say.

RS, 34, a Sri Lankan labourer, denied a charge of sexual assault before Judge Abdel Majid Al Nezami yesterday in the Dubai Criminal Court of First Instance.

Prosecutors also charged him with illegally entering a women-only area. He was detained by mall security on April 11.

MY, 29, a Filipina hairdresser, told prosecutors that as she was using the toilet, she heard a loud knock on the door and the voice of a woman telling her to get out. The next hearing will be July 27.
