A 19-year-old woman beat a 37-year-old man with her shoe and got him arrested after he touched her inappropriately on Saturday evening.

The college student told police that the man had molested her on the pretext of giving her a job at Malad (West).

According to the Malwani police, the accused Umesh Pandey, 37, and the woman’s father knew each other as they live in the same locality. The complainant works a part time job to support her family.

The accused had told the woman’s father that he would find a good job for his daughter. After she returned from work in the evening at around 6.30pm the accused asked her to come to his office.

Pandey told her that he would provide her with a good job and then started touching her back. The teen asked him not to touch her but he groped her. She then assaulted him with her chappal.

Her screams alerted local residents who rushed to the spot but Pandey managed to run away.

The woman then informed her father and the two went to Malwani police station where a first information report (FIR) was registered under section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

Dubey was later traced and arrested. He has been remanded to judicial custody and will have to stay in jail till a court grants him bail.
