A Saudi man in his 20’s was arrested on Monday after a video of him trying to molest and attack a girl with special needs circulated on social media, a spokesperson for the Medina Police Department said.
The move comes after Attorney General Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb directed the police to track the man who appeared in the video, arrest him for interrogation and take the proper procedure.
Those who shared the video said the man was either an Uber or a Careem driver. The spokesperson, however, did not elaborate any further on the identity of the detained man.
The police warned that it will punish anyone who dare violate the security or harm people and called on parents to “bear their responsibilities towards their children.”
