Saudi police arrested a local man on charges of embezzling nearly SR400,000 (Dh400,000) from an Emirati woman by posing as a lawyer.

The unnamed woman had reported the man to the police in eastern Saudi Arabia after he managed to extort the sum from her by offering presumed legal services.

“We have summoned the man and arrested him after stealing SR400,000 from an Emirati woman by impersonating a lawyer,” police said in a statement carried by the Saudi Arabic language daily Ajel.
