The Dubai Criminal Court has sentenced an Arab manager, 28-year-old, to one year of jail-time, followed by deportation, for impersonating a police officer and robbing an Asian woman.

Official records indicate that the 37-year-old, Asian victim was heading to a Dubai metro station, when she was suddenly stopped by the suspect, who claimed he was an undercover police officer.

The suspect asked her to show her identification card, but the victim said she only had her labour card. He then asked where she kept her money, so the victim took out her wallet and the suspect took Dhs1,200 from it.

The suspect suddenly pushed her by the face until she fell down hard and fled away. The fall caused a pelvic fracture for the helpless victim.

Last month, the Dubai Public Prosecution referred two Asians to the criminal court for impersonating police officers, kidnapping a man and robbing him of Dhs5,000 and other belongings. Defendants are 23 and 28 years old.

Official records indicate that on the day of the incident, the two suspects in Arab attire stopped victim and pretending to be CID officers asked the victim to accompany them.

The defendants had prior knowledge that  the victim has run away from his sponsor and was wanted by police.

They drove off to a highway in Al Hamriyah Area.

The suspects took the victim’s fingerprints on some device claiming to be checking his criminal record.

Afterwards, they informed the victim that he had to pay a Dhs50,000 fine for leaving his sponsor's job and illegally selling telephone cards.

They also threatened the victim that he would be jailed for 6 months followed by deportation for his crime.
