A Saudi Arabian man has been jailed for five years for attempting to rape a Chinese woman in a public square.

Alsubaie Bader Fahad, 22, will be deported after serving his sentence for the crime in Changsha City in central China’s Hunan Province, said a local court.

Fahad was studying at a local college, majoring in Chinese.

In April, he went to a fast-food restaurant at 6am after drinking, and began harassing a woman dining alone.

The frightened woman left but was followed by Fahad to a commercial square, reported Changsha Evening News.

He attempted to rape the 38-year-old and had removed some of her clothing when passers-by intervened.

Police detained Fahad upon arrival.

Fahad claimed that no assault took place as the woman did not cry out for help.
