A jilted watchman butchered his lover and stabbed a colleague he thought she was in a relationship with, said a senior officer from Ajman Police on Wednesday.
The Arab man, 20, a guard from a private security firm, walked into Al Madina Comprehensive Police Station wearing bloodstained clothes and told officers that he killed his lover and killed his colleague –thinking that the colleague died.
He had suspected his lover with whom he had been in a relationship for three years of cheating on him with his colleague.
He met with his colleague near the latter’s residence in Al Nakheel area 2 in Ajman at around 10:00pm and they disputed.
“He explained to us that the dispute escalated after which he picked up a pitchfork and stabbed his colleague in the head,” said the Director of Ajman Police’s Criminal Investigations Department, Lieutenant Colonel Ahmad Saeed Al Nuaimi.
Police patrols dispatched to this first crime scene found the Arab man, in his 40s, languishing on the floor of the car park of the building where he lived. “He was bleeding profusely from a severe head injury,” explained Lieutenant Colonel Al Nuaimi.
An ambulance arrived and rushed him to Sheikh Khalifa Hospital.
The defendant thinking that his colleague died, contacted his lover and summoned her for a meeting at their usual spot on the terrace of a tower in Ajman’s Al Rashidiyah area at 11:00pm.
On his way to the second crime scene, he purchased scissors. Upon meeting her he fatally struck her in the neck and struck her in various parts of the body.
He sat beside the dead body for about five hours then resolved to surrender to police authorities.
Police found the murder tool he used to assault his colleague chucked behind the building where the ghastly attack took place.
Police have referred the case to the Public Prosecution for further investigations before the defendant could stand trial.
