2 knife-wielding men rob Indian woman at home

Also: Two 'tricky' thieves held in Sharjah

Two Pakistani men posing as detectives robbed an Indian woman at home and frightened her two-year-old daughter before they were arrested by Dubai’s police within five hours after making away with money and jewelry.

The two unnamed men had knocked at the door of the woman’s apartment in Quz and asked her to declare all her money and jewellery but she refused, saying police men normally do not do such things.

They then used knives to force her to bring all her jewelry and Dh5,000, which they seized. As they were about to leave the flat, the woman’s daughter came out of her bedroom crying because of her mother’s screams.

When they saw gold bracelets in the child’s hands, they wanted to use metal cutters to take them off her wrists but her mother begged them not to do so and said she would take off the bracelets herself. They then left with the money and nearly Dh20,000 worth of jewellery in addition to the woman’s passport.

“They were arrested nearly five hours after they carried out this crime,” Dubai’s CID chief Brigadier Khalil Al Mansoori said, quoted by Emarat Al Youm daily.

Another police officer said the two were arrested after investigation led to their whereabouts, adding that several people in Quz gave police their descriptions.

“We then identified the suspects as workers at a Jebel Ali contracting company, which is about to shut down and is cancelling the visas of all its workers…our men raided their flat and arrested the two…they also recovered the money and the jewellry, which is worth nearly Dh20,000,” said Lt Colonel Ahmed Al Marri, criminal interrogation director.

Two 'tricky' thieves held in Sharjah

Sharjah police arrested two Pakistani men for stealing many groceries in Khor Fakkan by tricking shopkeepers into believing they owed them money.
Police seized the two after receiving reports from many shops about the thefts in the eastern port town. All shopkeepers identified the two after their arrest.
Police said the two followed the same way in robbing the shops by buying items and taking the change from the shop owners.
They then would come back to return the items, plunging the shop keepers into a lengthy argument about the price and change and how much they had paid, leading eventually to the shops being robbed.
Two held for trying to bribe Fujairah cop
Fujairah police arrested two Arab men for trying to bride a police man so he will smuggle one of them out of the country to avert prosecution.
The police man told his seniors that an Arab man offered him Dh4,000 so he will smuggle his friend out of Dibba Al Hosn into Oman as he is wanted in a court case for forgery in another emirate, according to Alkhaleej newspaper.
The cop pretended he accepted the deal and met the two in Dibba Al Hosn after receiving the promised Dh4,000.
“Once they paid him, other police men raided the place and arrested the two,” the paper said, quoting police sources.
