Dubai worker charged for sexually assaulting man while drunk.

A construction worker has been charged in a Dubai court with sexually assaulting a man, taking advantage that he was drunk at the time.
Public prosecution records show the 29-year-old Pakistani man found the Indian man under the influence of alcohol and he seized the opportunity to take him to his labour accommodation in Jebel Ali industrial area where he sexually assaulted him.
The incident allegedly took place onNovember 17, last year.
While the defendant has been charged in the Court of First Instance with sexual assault, the complainant has been referred to the Court of Misdemeanors on the charge of consuming alcohol without a licence.
The complainant, 24, said he was walking back to his labour accommodation in the industrial area of Jebel Ali after10pm."I was drunk and was walking when the accused stopped me and suggested to walk me to my accommodation. I agreed but then he took me to a labour accommodation that I did not know. There he forced me inside a room and sexually assaulted me after closing the door," the worker said during investigation. He told the prosecutor that he tried to seek help from the workers there but to no avail, adding that the accused used his physical force when he assaulted him.
"When I opened the door, I saw three other Pakistani men standing there. I asked him (the construction worker) to let me go to the washroom. That is how I could escape and I went to my labour accommodation where I informed the supervisor and then the police."
