A 25-year-old Asian was arrested and referred to criminal court, for brutally beating up and mugging a man of Dhs4,000 in one of Dubai’s streets.
On the day of the incident, the defendant and his two other runaway accomplices had spotted the victim around 1:00am walking down the street at his residential area in Dubai.
They suddenly attacked him and restrained his movement, then took turns in beating him up. They grabbed his phone and wallet, which contained Dhs4,090 and fled the scene.
Police arrived to the scene and took descriptions of the defendants, then investigations were carried out to find their whereabouts.
Awhile after, they were identified and apprehended, and are now facing assault and robbery charges.
Details of the incident indicate that the victim was peacefully driving his taxi at midnight, when he was stopped by the defendant who pretended to be a customer and asked to be dropped to a specific location.
The incident occurred during March this year, when the 28-year-old Asian victim showed up at the police station to report about an African gang who lured and attacked him at an apartment in Dubai.
The incident date back to last August, when the defendant decided to take advantage of the time when the victim was busy with her kids, and rob the place of whatever she can take.
Details of the case date back to an earlier time when the plaintiff filed a lawsuit demanding the defendant to pay him Dhs60,000 in compensation for the moral and material damages he suffered, indicating that the suspect insulted him in front of his colleagues.
