Two RTA workers have been accused of harassing a 36-year-old woman they met when they helped her change her tyres, according to The National.

The employees, BA, Lebanese, 22, and JA, Australian, 21, allegedly posted some of the victim's personal data on Facebook after logging into her Salik account and taking down her information.

The victim told prosecutors in the Dubai Court of Misdemeanors that one of the suspects contacted her via BlackBerry messenger after the two men had helped her with her car, she said she ignored the man's message.

The victim told her husband about the unwanted contact from the men, he advised her to save all the messages and then went to the police to lodge a complaint against the accused.

Both suspects have confessed to logging onto the woman's Salik account to steal her details. One of the men is also accused of copying down the woman's personal email address and sending her several more messages. 

Copies of the messages were submitted in court as evidence and a verdict is expected on February 2.
