A 10-year-old Filipino boy had been allegedly molested by a Pakistani laundry worker while his parents were off at work, Gulf News reported on Tuesday.

The boy told Dubai’s Court of First Instance on Monday that the worker, 24, groped him when he delivered their clothes to their house on December 12, 2016.

In his testimony, the boy said the suspect “touched me in a bad way,” and also “hugged me and kissed my cheeks.”

A report on The National said the boy immediately informed his father of the incident through Facebook.

Khaleej News reported that the boy’s father, a 48-year-old civil engineer, rushed home to find his son “crying hysterically.”

The laundry worker pleaded not guilty to the charges and denied doing anything wrong with the boy.

The court will give its ruling on the case on February 27. —Rie Takumi/KBK, GMA News
