The Dubai Criminal Court sentenced an Asian to three months in jail to be followed by deportation for biting off the ear of another following a dispute over getting private stuff back from a shared residence.

The case, which took place inside a shared residence in Al Jaddaf area in Dubai, dated back to August last year when an Asian filed a report in which he stated that his brother had been assaulted by a fellow man who was previously sharing a house with them.

The defendant came to his room and an altercation occurred between the defendant and his brother, which developed into a fistfight, he said, adding that he tried to separate them but the defendant bit off his brother’s ear and fled.

He then informed the police accordingly and called for an ambulance, which took the victim to the hospital, he added.

A policeman stated in the interrogations that a team of detectives managed to arrest the defendant, who confessed to having assaulted the victim, who prevented him from getting his stuff back from the room he was previously living in.

The defendant added that he assaulted the victim, who tried to expel him from the room, and consequently he had to bite off his ear to keep him away from him.

According to the forensic lab report, the victim sustained an injury in the left ear, which would take more than 20 days of medical treatment. The victim was left with a loss of part of the auricle, which is considered a permanent disability with an estimated degree of incapacity of three per cent.
