DUBAI – Two Pakistani men are on trial in Dubai for a daring robbery in Jebel Ali where they allegedly held a security guard at knifepoint.
The Dubai Criminal Court heard that the duo, aged 27 and 22, had broken into a building in Jebel Ali at 2am on March 23 and threatened the security guard with a knife.
In his testimony, the guard said that the armed duo demanded to be told where the company kept its money, before tying him to a chair and locking him in the bathroom.
“One of them pointed a knife to my throat and threatened to kill me, demanding that I tell them where the company’s money is kept,” the guard testified.
The pair failed to open the safe, so they ransacked the premises and stole Dh40,000 before fleeing the scene.
The guard was later discovered by a colleague who arrived for the morning shift. Police were able to identify and arrest the suspects through security footage.
The hearing resumes on September 12. GAD/Expat Media
