Woman pedestrian's mobile snatched at night

By Eman Al Baik

A drunken worker allegedly followed a woman pedestrian, attacked her and snatched away her mobile phone, the Dubai Criminal Court heard.

At around 11 pm, FA was walking in International City’s England cluster near the park when a man attacked her and gagged her mouth before pushing her to the ground and snatching her mobile phone.

An Indian visitor, who was walking home with his wife, saw a man and a woman fighting but he thought it was a fight between wife and husband.

“When I heard the woman shouting for help, I rushed to the place and the man, who was in abnormal condition, ran away. The woman told me that the man had attacked her and stole her mobile phone, so I called the police,” testified IY, 33.

Police arrested the attacker who was roaming in another cluster and confiscated the victim’s mobile phone from him. The victim and the Indian visitor recognised the attacker.

The court will give its sentence on March 30.
