A Dubai medical centre manager groped an employee and slapped her in the face and asked another to have sex with him, a court heard.

The Iraqi accused, 55, allegedly carried out two sexual assaults on workers at the practice in a matter of months.

One of the assaults took place on December 17 of last year after the nurse went to his office to discuss unpaid wages, Dubai Criminal Court was told.

“He grabbed my breast and asked me to relieve him if I wanted him to help me,” said the nurse.

She said the manager then slapped her, causing her nose to bleed.

She reported him to police over his actions.

Employees at the medical centre, on Al Wasl Road, Dubai, testified to hearing a heated argument take place between the two.

The woman suffered bruises to the neck as well as bleeding from the nose, a medical report from Rashid Hospital stated.

The manager is already accused of sexually assaulting a receptionist, 25, in October.

She told prosecutors that he had repeatedly asked her to have sex with him but she turned him down and avoided being around him because she needed the job.

“One day he caught me alone at the dental clinic and hugged me from behind grabbing my breast. A patient walked in and scolded him,” said the woman.

The accused was referred to court last February on a sex assault charge against the Egyptian receptionist, which he denied.

He was back in court on Sunday charged with sexually assaulting the Moroccan nurse.

He denied the charge.

The case was adjourned until June 9.
