An Arab manager, 28, impersonated an undercover policeman, stopped an Asian woman, 37, stole her money and pushed her down to the ground so hard that she broke her pelvis.
The incident, which the Dubai Public Prosecution referred to the courts of law, dated back to Dec.26, 2019 when the victim was on her way to a metro station.
The defendant, claiming to be an undercover policeman, then stopped her and asked her for her ID card.
The victim told the defendant that she did not hold an ID card but had a labour card.
The defendant then demanded her money and as she was taking out her purse, he snatched Dhs1,200 from it, grabbed the victim’s face and pushed her so hard she fell to the ground and fractured her pelvis. The defendant then ran away.
Defendants faced charges of forming and forging documents to embezzle $1.7 million or Dhs6.2 million from bank accounts belonging to a businesswoman, who was a customer of a UAE bank.
Official records indicate that the suspect had mugged the victim’ handbag, with the help of an accomplice, and stole her phone along with it.
When the police arrived and tried to arrest the defendant he refused to follow their orders and assaulted a policeman. The defendant sought the help of his family after which his mother came and bit the policeman’s hand.
In a statement given to 'Nation Shield,' the UAE Armed Forces magazine, Sheikh Khalifa added that these sacrifices are "medals of pride" that will adorn "our chests and those of our children and grandchildren."
