A 27-year-old African maid was arrested and referred to criminal court for secretly filming her employer’s family during their sleep and threatening to hurt herself with a knife in Dubai.
Details of the incident date back to last August, when the house owner asked the defendant to return the phone that she previously bought for her after which the defendant seemed nervous and lied about the phone’s location.
After searching the defendant’s room, the phone was found hidden in her undergarment. This is when the defendant lost her nerves and ran to the kitchen to grab a knife and threaten to kill herself along with her employer.
The dramatic scene was made after the housewife managed to take the phone from the defendant by force.
Upon reporting the incident to police, the housewife learnt that the real reason behind the defendant’s sudden act of violence was the secret pictures taken by the defendant for all members of the family.
Apparently, the defendant took pictures of the housewife and her employer’s kids, then sends them to her friends through WhatsApp.
The housewife also found out that the defendant had secretly sneaked some of her friends inside their family house as some of the pictures on her phone were evidence to her actions.
