An Asian foreman, 28, seized the chance of supervising a group of workers installing solar panels to enter a villa and steal two diamond rings.
The victim, the villa owner, informed the police, who arrested the defendant. Dubai Public Prosecution then referred the defendant to the Dubai Criminal Court, which heard the case and charged the defendant with theft. According to the official records, the victim testified that on the day of the incident, a number of employees and workers came to his villa to install solar panels to change the lighting system in the villa. The defendant entered the bedroom to examine it, the victim said, adding that after the employees and workers had left, his wife told him that the two diamond rings she put on the dressing table in their bedroom were missing. The defendant was under suspicion because the victim saw him entering his bedroom.

The offender allegedly molested the young girl, who was helpless and scared, then directly left the scene after his heinous act. The terrified victim rushed back to her house to shower and inform her mother who was at the neighbour’s house at the time of the incident. The mother immediately called the police afterwards.
