(MENAFN - Arab News) The Eastern Province police arrested on Thursday the man filmed on a surveillance camera sexually assaulting a seven-year-old girl in the foyer of a residential building in Dammam.

Col. Ziad Al-Ruqaiti, spokesman for the Eastern Province police, said the man is in his 20s and has a criminal record.

He said specialists analyzed the video published on YouTube and used the information to identity the perpetrator.

Al-Ruqaiti said the police dealt with few such cases. He warned parents to watch over their children when they are out in public.

There was an outpouring of anger and shock on the Internet on Wednesday after the 47-second video appeared on YouTube.

Many users on social networks called for the government to punish the man severely and introduce new legislation, including tougher sanctions, for sexual harassment.

They also called on government to introduce lessons on sexual harassment at schools.

The video shows the little girl in her school uniform standing at the elevator in the foyer of the building when the perpetrator shows up.

The man, dressed in a white short-sleeved thobe and skullcap, first walks past her to check if anyone is on the staircase and then turns back to talk to her. He checks the doors to the fire escape and the elevator, and then lifts the little girl's dress and starts molesting her.

He stops as the elevator arrives, and then enters it behind her. The video ends at this point.

Suhaila Zain Al-Abideen, a member of the National Society for Human Rights (NSHR), has called on the judiciary to name and shame men found guilty of sexual abuse, followed by lengthy jail sentences.
