An African duo are facing trial on robbery charges by the Dubai Public Prosecution, after robbing their friend of Dhs10,000 at his residence in Dubai.
The incident took place in February, when police‘s operations room received a call about the robbery that occurred in Africana building in Frij Murar area, Dubai.
A police patrol was immediately dispatched to the scene. In the presence of the officers, the victim revealed that he was in the company of friends when 8 people showed up and asked to join their party. The victim agreed and welcomed them without thinking that he would fall prey to their vicious plan.
In the blink of an eye, the two defendants and their accomplices took out knives and began to threaten the attendees and their host.
"They asked us to empty our pockets and hand out money and phones,” the victim said. The gang ended up stealing Dh10,000 and a phone before fleeing the apartment. Police carried out investigations to identify and arrest the robbers.
Fortunately, a tip-off to police revealed that the two defendants were involved in the robbery.
Police seized 268kg heroin worth Dhs134 million, crystal (meth) worth Dhs144 million and 1kg hashish worth Dhs50,000
