A 27-year-old Arab man was apprehended and prosecuted on attempted robbery charges, after he attacked a supermarket’s cashier employee with a knife in Dubai.
The incident took place last November, when the defendant entered the supermarket and suddenly attacked the woman cashier using a knife in an attempt to steal the cash box.
The defendant threatened to hurt her if she did not hand all the money to him.
The manager heard the cashier’s screams and headed to her rescue without hesitation.
He attempted to tackle the defendant, but was also threatened with the knife.
The burglar managed to steal Dhs8,800 from the cash box, and grabbed the manager’s phone before fleeing.
Luckily, the supermarket’s security guard was standing ready to capture the defendant, and successfully caught him until police arrived to the scene.
The victim was alerted with the sudden disappearance of two gold watches and a bracelet from his bedroom safe. All suspicion fell on the cook as he was the only one who had access to the bedroom to take care of the laundry.
Apparently, the defendant attempted to steal the entire ATM machine using an electric drill, and cable-cutting machine in order to detach the ATM and take it along.
The incident dates back to November last year, when an Asian man filed a police report against the defendant claiming he was assaulted and robbed after withdrawing Dhs2,500 from an ATM machine in one of Dubai’s hypermarkets.
A 33-year-old Asian maid was booked and prosecuted by Dubai Courts for robbing her employer of Dhs5,000 and other personal belongings inside a Dubai villa.
