Woman tries to file sexual assault report, officer assaults her

After leaving work, Alaa Mohamed Ali, in her thirties, was on a bus back to her home in Haram when she was subject to a sexual assault.

She decided to be proactive, asking the driver to pull over outside the Talbiya police station to file a complaint, only to receive a slap on the face from the police officer who threw her into a cell.

“I told the officer what had happened and asked him to register my complaint. He went to the driver and asked for his account before letting him go,” Alaa told Al-Masry Al-Youm, noting that the harasser had escaped before they stopped at the police station.
