The Dubai Public Prosecution referred three jailed Asian defendants to criminal court, for committing an armed robbery using knifes and pepper-spray to rob a male victim of his money in Dubai.
Official reports indicate that the victim had filed a police report after he was jumped by the three defendants and brutally assaulted and threatened by them in order to comply with their demands.
The victim testified that the defendants came out of the blue and used pepper-spray on him and attacked him.
They then covered his face with his own shirt.
One of the defendants restrained the victim’s movement, while the other placed a knife to his stomach and asked him to give up his phone and wallet.
The victim attempted to fight back but was unfortunately injured in the neck and hand.
The defendants managed to grab the phone and wallet that has only Dhs100 inside and fled the scene.
However, the victim ran behind the robbers to identify their faces, and managed to get back his stolen phone after they threw it to the ground.
Police investigations revealed the whereabouts of the three defendants, and they were all apprehended on robbery and assault charges.
The Asian businessman, 55, and supervisor, 43, with the help of fugitives made use of the victims’ financial status to lure them into coming to the UAE with the prospect of better jobs.
