During last November, the victim filed a robbery report, claiming that the defendant approached him and his brother in a shopping mall’s parking lot, and introduced himself as an undercover police officer.
The defendant suddenly slapped the victims and asked them to show their IDs. Once the victim took out his wallet, the defendant grabbed it and fled the scene.
The thief managed to flee with Dhs1,500 and bank cards, but was successfully arrested by police within a record time.
