A driver in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was charged for allegedly molesting a 12-year-old Filipina girl in her parents' flat in July, the news site Khaleej Times reported on Tuesday.

The trial for the case of the 29-year-old Pakistani, who allegedly fondled the girl against her will, began last Sunday in the Court of First Instance, the report said.

Khaleej Times said the driver— with three other workers — allegedly came to the girl's house in Al Qusais on July 8 for maintenance work on the family's air conditioner, said the girl's mother, a commercial officer in a private firm.

The girl told the prosecutor that the man smiled at her before grabbing her cheeks and fondling her "on purpose" in her mother's bedroom, where she stayed to make the bed.

She then ran to her mother and told her about the incident. In turn, the mother confronted the driver, who was then still fixing the air-conditioner in the bedroom.

The mother said the man apologized to her before the security guard of the building came to detain him. The Al Qusais police later took the accused to the police station. - RJMD, GMA News
