According to the police, the incident happened at around 5.05 am on Tuesday, when the 40-year-old woman was heard screaming for help as the man tried to attack her. When the neighbours began opening the doors and windows, the accused, identified as Tata Datt, allegedly ran away. In the video, the woman is seen walking down the road near JC Nagar when she is stopped by Datt, who pulls down his pants and begins harassing her. The woman is seen screaming and hitting him with a slipper. "The woman filed the complaint yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon. We procured the CCTV footage from one of the houses where the incident occurred. We were able to track the accused within one hour," the JC Nagar police reportedly said. Claiming that Datt was a habitual offender, the police reportedly mentioned that the man has had several robbery cases against him as well. "We have six videos of him running back home from different locations starting from the scene of the crime. He was picked up within an hour's time and he confessed to the crime after questioning," the police further added.

The accused has reportedly been booked under section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and 354A (physical contact and advances involving unwelcome and explicit sexual overtures) of the Indian Penal Code.
