A 26-year-old African visitor was sentenced to six months in prison to be followed by deportation over stealing Dhs86,000 from an Asian tourist with the help of two others in a massage centre.
The details of the case go back to the time when the victim was in Naif area to buy some electrical appliances from a shop, where he was told to wait two hours until the goods were processed. He preferred to walk around the area instead of waiting in the shop. While roaming, he was offered a massage session by the defendant. He agreed and accompanied her to a flat which he found portioned by curtains. She actually began massaging him and later seduced him, but he refrained. After that, two women stormed the place and assaulted him. They snatched the bag that contained the money and ran away. He ran after them and managed to catch the defendant with the help of passers-by.
