The man also threatened to castrate the boy

A security expert who molested a boy after threatening to castrate him will spend two years behind bars.

On June 8 this year, the Emirati defendent, 29, drove the boy, 13, from Syria, to a remote and poorly lit area in Al Warqa where he molested him, Dubai Criminal Court was told.

Records showed that the defendent had called the boy and asked to meet him and his friend inside the mall.

It was not disclosed how the defendent and the boy know each other.

When the boy arrived at the mall, he was asked to get into the defendant's Nissan Patrol alone.

He locked the car, before turning to the boy and threatening to castrate him and then ordering him to massage his back.

A few minutes later, he assaulted the boy and said: “If you betray my trust, I will have all my friends rape you.”
