The Sharjah Criminal Court, to hear witnesses, has adjourned to Feb 2, the case of six Asians charged with storming into the house of a compatriot, 38, and beating and robbing him after impersonating securitymen.

The victim said while he was in his two-room apartment in Muwaileh (where he lived in one and rented the other to four girls) six suspects stormed his home. The second suspect, who impersonated a CID  officer, persuaded him to open the door. The suspect reportedly entered the apartment, hit the victim several times on the back with a device. The other suspects allegedly stole a vehicle key, bank card, money, and mobile phone, then fled leaving the victim.

The suspects denied the charges and also their confessions before the Public Prosecution in the court.

Recently, the Dubai Criminal Court charged two Arab visitors with stealing the contents of a sports bag containing a mobile phone, and threatening the owner with publishing her videos and pictures on the phone, in return for Dhs2,000.

The court allegedly charged the suspects with violating the privacy of the victim through an information technology means and transferring visual material from her mobile phone to smart devices.

The first suspect stole the bag from the victim while she was at the bus station. The bag contained money, jewellery, valuable accessories, and an old phone, estimated at more than Dhs20,000.

The victim was waiting for the bus and the first suspect offered her help in carrying her bags and putting them on the bus, so she agreed. He allegedly put the two bags in the designated place on the bus. He then told her that he put the bags in place, but she doubted him due to his strange behaviour during the conversation, but she was in a hurry and went up quickly to the bus.

When she reportedly reached her destination, she was shocked when she discovered her bag was not there. She asked the driver, who told her the suspect did not get on the bus. She then reported the incident to the police, and it was found that the cameras at the bus station were not working.
