Al-Khobar harassment case: 5 held

DAMMAM – Police arrested five youths involved in harassing a group of young women at Dhahran Mall in Al-Khobar last week.
Lt. Col. Ziyad Al-Roqaiti, spokesman of the Eastern Province police, said that a manhunt is under way, in coordination with the security agencies of the neighboring regions, to catch the remaining two culprits.
A video footage of the harassment, being circulated widely through social networking sites, had triggered an angry wave of reaction across the Kingdom.
Al-Roqaiti said that a working team, headed by the Eastern Province police chief, has been constituted to investigate the incident and nab the harassers as per the directive of Prince Saud Bin Naif, Emir of the Eastern Province.
“The Emir has issued directives to hand over the culprits to the Bureau of Investigation and Public Prosecution for further interrogation and then refer the case to the court,” he said.
The spokesman said police will take stringent action against those who indulge in such immoral acts. He urged both young men and women to behave decently and hold fast to the principles of Shariah.
The video clip showed a group of five young women being harassed by a number of youths in the parking lot of the mall.
Meanwhile, the Jeddah police detained five people who are accused of raping a three-year-old girl in Jeddah. The suspects included three men and two women. The operation room at Jeddah police received information from a private hospital last month that the child was found thrown away at the hospital's main gate.
There were marks of abuse on her body, in addition to severe vaginal bleeding.
An eyewitness said that some people took the child in a car and dumped her in front of the hospital gate at around 10.00 p.m. on Sept. 13.
