Cairo criminal court sentenced on Monday two low-ranking police officers to 10 and seven years in prison respectively for sexually assaulting a young woman from Shubra neighborhood in Cairo.

The case dates back to January 2015, when the general prosecution referred the two policemen to court after it charged them with kidnapping a female, assaulting her, committing an indecent action in public, and arresting her without a prosecution's order.

The investigations revealed that the two policemen had stopped the car in which the woman and a man were in, forced the woman to accompany them, took her in their police vehicle to a remote area, took off her clothes and assaulted her. The victim's screaming forced the policemen to flee.

The two policemen, who had been released on bail of EGP 3,000 during the trial, can appeal the verdict.
