A 40-year-old Emirati man with AIDS allegedly raped a Moroccan woman after stalking her in May, according to Khaleej Times.

The man has denied the charges. Pleading not guilty before the Dubai Court of First Instance, he said he was ill. A medical examination confirmed he had AIDS and other transmittable diseases.

The accused allegedly followed the woman home in the wee hours of May 13 as she returned from a night out, according to records. The woman, 24, claimed that the man forced his way into her flat as she was opening the door. She claimed he then raped her. "He said he would slit my throat if I screamed for help," the woman said.
