reported Saudi Arabia's religious police, the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, arrested the Saudi man for multiple affairs with women and girls. The figure of 1,073 was surmised by the number of contact numbers stored in the man's mobile telephone.
The mobile also revealed photographs of the man in compromising positions and engaged in obscene acts with many women, together with videos showing him beating women.
The man appears to be a compulsive philanderer, having been arrested and jailed twice before for such practices, according to the IB Times
. They report the man stands accused of blackmailing the women, threatening to leak the pictures online unless they handed over money or jewellery.
The man's proclivities were exposed when one of his victims came forward, complaining of sexual harassment and extortion.
No mention has been made if the man's victims will be charged with indecency or adultery
, a crime which can be punishable by death under Sharia law in the Kingdom.
