Women openly harassed on the streets of Jeddah
In the video men are seen running after a group of women who were walking on the street. A woman was grabbed by her Abaya , while some tried saving themselves in a nearby house. After this incident Saudi Twitter and social media had a meltdown.
A lot of people over the internet called out to the men and spoke up against it. People called their actions in the video barbaric and uncivilized.
People expressed their anger:
“Uncivilized human beings, this is something to be ashamed of. It's impossible that there were no security officers anywhere to stop these men.”
Where were the authorities?

يتحرشون بالبنات وانحشروا البنات فالمكان ذا ولا حسيب ولا رقيب— عبدالله (@amaas003) January 20, 2018
“They harassed these women and cornered them in a house and no one did anything”
How many more incidents are needed before any laws are passed?

يتم تبرير والدفاع عن المتحرشين بأن العباءة الملونه هي اللي فتنهم ولا يقدرون يتحملون متناسين البزرنجية وتحرشهم للأطفال 😄، لو فيه قانون تحرش صريح بعقوبات قويه رادعه قسم بالله ما تشوف أحد يقدر يقول لأي بنت أو طفل أو أم ثلث الثلاثة كم، لكن من أمن العقاب أساء الأدب.
“Some people are making excuses for abusers saying they were aroused by colored abayas and what not. They forget that harassers also target modest women and even children. If there was a clear, strict anti-harassment law in effect no one would dare abuse a woman or a child in any way.”
However authorities took notice of the situation and started an investigation, posting:
"Mekkah's Prince has ordered the governorate's police to investigate the viral footage capturing a violations committed in Dorrat Al Arous, calling on everyone involved to be held accountable over their actions."
