A worker followed a pregnant housewife to the lift of the building where she lives and molested her, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

On January 3 this year, Afghan M K, 23, followed S A, from Singapore, to the lift in her building in Dubai International City’s Moroccan cluster at about 7.30pm, the court was told.

“There was a second man in the lift, but he stepped out on the first floor, after which the defendant asked me if I was pregnant,” S A said.

When she told him she was, he touched her belly, she said.

“He then tried to lift up my shirt and when I stopped him, he grabbed my breast. I screamed at him and got out of the elevator,” said S A.

M K denied the charge. A verdict is expected on April 18.
