Dammam – A young man in his twenties escaped arrest by the security patrol in the Jalawiya area in the eastern city of Dammam after attempting to force entry into an apartment by seducing the household”s maid.

The maid reported the incident to her superior who in turn informed her husband of the matter. He instructed the maid to continue with the ploy until and wait for him to reach the property from his workplace.

Amazingly, the husband succeeded in grabbing hold of the perpetrator as he continued talking to the maid. Overwhelmed, the young man begged the house owner to be compassionate and not to disclose his actions to the authorities.

The two men engaged in long conversation, as the husband attempted to lure him into the house to deliver him to the police upon their arrival. However, the young man escaped and the property owner called the police.

It was later discovered that the youth had left his car parked outside the apartment. After police investigations, they established that the car had been stolen and used in similar cases of attempted forced entry.
