An Imam was arrested on a charge of sexual assault after allegedly hypnotizing a woman before touching her private parts, police in Germany said.
The 33-year-old woman identified as Dounya of Berlin, told a court that Abdelkader D., hypnotized her as part of a marriage counseling session, but then proceeded to sexually abuse her when he thought that she was unconscious.
Dounya and her husband Abdul, were having marital problems when they decided to seek the assistance of Abdelkader. Abdul brought Abdelkader to his home after Friday prayers, promising to save their relationship through hypnosis.
The Imam told Abdul that he believed Dounya had been cursed. He instructed the couple to lie on a bed while reading the words of the Koran.
After three hours, Dounya woke up and her makeup was smeared all over her face. During another session three days later, she managed to stay awake.
The Imam smelled her hair and put his mouth on hers when he thought she was unconscious. The Imam moved his hand over her body and began to fondle her private parts.
The next day, the couple confronted the Imam, but he denied the allegations, saying that the devil put evil thought into their heads.
