two of them are also facing charges of kidnapping the boy and depriving him of his freedom after luring him into going out with them. the defendants admitted in the interrogation to having had sex with the boy but alleged it happened with his own consent.

a police lieutenant described the victim as being a scared and confused minor when his mother reported the incident to the bur dubai police station on may 6 last year.

according to prosecution records the defendants took turns to sexually assault the boy in a dark place inside an emission station of a telecommunication company away from residence buildings in umm suqeim 1.

the criminal evidence report showed that there were traces of semen on the floor where the inident happened. the traces matched with the dna of one of the accused.

the schoolboy said he was with his mother and brothers on the jumeirah open beach in april last year when his mother left him and took his 5-year-old brother home because he fell down and had an injury. that was when he met the main accused a 21-year-old student. “he told me that he knew my cousin and asked me for my name and mobile number. i gave it to him as i trusted him.”

the main accused sexually assaulted him in the water taking advantage that it was dark. as the scared youngster tried to run away the accused grabbed and threatened him saying he would go to his house and hurt him and his family.

around 10pm the same day the victim was phoned by the main accused and an accomplice. they drove him later to a telecommunication emission station where they both sexually assaulted him at knifepoint. they later threatened him not to inform his parents or they would hurt them.

two weeks later he was also asked to meet them outside a school. “i got scared after they threatened to come to me if i did not go to them.” they picked him up and drove him to the same station. there all the four defendants gang-raped him.

the boy’s father a 52-year-old emirati trader said his boy has been seeing a psychiatrist ever since he was abused. “he sits alone at home and eats more than usual. he beats his brothers and screams at his mother.”
