Arab delivery man on trial in Sharjah for sexual harassment


DUBAI – An Arab delivery man is on trial in Sharjah for allegedly harassing a woman while delivering food to her home.

The man pleaded not guilty to the charge when he appeared before the Sharjah Misdemeanour Court.

The court heard that the incident happened several months ago after the man delivered food that the woman ordered from a restaurant in the emirate.

At her doorstep, he allegedly refused to accept payment for the food but held her hand and asked her to share her phone number.

According to Public Prosecution records, the Arab man kept telling her, “Leave it on us”, referring to the payment of her food. She then told him to leave before filing a complaint.

At the Sharjah court, the man said that he offered to pay the customer’s bill “out of Arab generosity”.
