A Filipino worker is in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit of a hospital in Riyadh after being raped, beaten up and left for dead in the desert by unidentified men, Philippines online news website abs-cbnnews reported.
The Filipino man worked as a service crew member of an ice cream chain inside a mall in Riyadh and had recently returned from the Philippines to Saudi Arabia to renew his contract.
The man has sustained serious head injuries and has suffered multiple bone fractures. He is presently under observation for possible internal hemorrhage.
Although he had difficulty speaking and moving, the injured man was able to scribble down words that would help identify his attackers. Philippine Embassy officials have visited him and have been in contact with his past employer.
