Saudi police seized a local man who raped a girl after she suffered from injuries during a road accident in the Gulf kingdom, press reports said on Sunday.

The man, in his 30s, confessed to police that he had taken the 23-year-old girl to his house instead of hospital and raped her before she managed to run away and inform the police, ‘Sabq’ Arabic language daily said.

“The man was arrested less than two hours after the incident….the girl was in a taxi cab at the time of the accident,” police spokesman Lt Nawaf Al-Bouq said.

“She got out of the taxi after sustained light injuries and stood on the road waiting for the ambulance…this man came and offered her a lift.”

Passersby who had gathered at the accident site on a key road in the western Red Sea port of Jeddah had helped the man put the injured woman in his car, thinking he would rush her to hospital as she was bleeding.

“On the way, the man told the woman he would first take her to his house so his wife would clean her up before going to hospital,” ‘Sabq’ said, quoting the woman as telling police after the rape. “When they were inside his house, there was no one there. He then raped her.”
