When officers investigated, the man claimed the woman had invited him to have sex with her. "He said that when he got to the apartment she took her clothes off by herself before asking him to take off his clothes." The man admitted to the officer that he had noticed the woman "was not normal" when he met her.
"He also said that she told him to come to her flat because there was no one present there and that when he got there she threatened to scream and make a scene if he did not have sex with her." Saeed Al Ghilani, the lawyer of the accused man, told the court the woman took advantage of his client not the other way round and requested bail.
As she tried to get up the man knocked her down and kicked her in the back before ripping off her clothes and raping her, she said. About half an hour later the woman's mother arrived, finding her daughter on the ground wearing only a shirt.
The daughter said she had been assaulted and the mother called police. "He told me that the woman asked to see him and that when he went to meet her she told him to follow her to the apartment," the police officer said.
"Even so, the sex would still be forceful." The court denied bail and scheduled the next hearing for September 24.
The woman told prosecutors she gave the man her mobile number after the pair met on Facebook and other social-networking sites. "He asked me to show him my flat, but I refused." She said that he found out where she lived and arrived outside, after which she took a photograph of him and his car.
The court also heard from an Emirati psychiatrist, E?H, 35, who said the woman's mental impairment "may make her unable to control her desires like sex".
