The clip was recorded from the roof of a nearby building and has gathered over 200,000 views since Thursday. It shows a young lady approaching a restaurant employee behind the eatery where he works. The pair talk for half a minute before the woman in black walks off.
A police spokesman told Akbhaar24 News that, following a “thorough investigation” into the incident, law-enforcement officers managed to identify the place where the brief conversation had taken place – a fast-food restaurant located near a school.
The woman seen in the video turned out to be a school student, whose behavior is against the Kingdom’s “moral norms,” police said. They also identified the woman’s partner in crime, who was questioned and punished according to Saudi rules and regulations.
The video of the pair’s verbal interaction has caused mixed reaction on social media, with many blaming the woman, and some suggesting the man should marry the girl to atone for the offence.
