Two pros­ti­tutes stole Dhs200,000 from a man’s bag while he was hav­ing sex with one of their friends, a court heard.

Dubai Court of First In­stance was told the Nige­rian was walk­ing through the Naif area on Fe­bru­ary 28 with Dhs1 mil­lion in his case when he was propo­si­tioned by a Ugan­dan woman.

The man went back to her flat, where two other Ugan­dan women were wait­ing. He said he put the bag next to the bed while he was hav­ing sex and that the other women took some of the cash.

It was not stated whether the money was his.

The man later went to Naif Po­lice Sta­tion.

“It was af­ter mid­night when he came in say­ing some women stole his money,” a po­lice of­fi­cer said. “He claimed that he was car­ry­ing a bag con­tain­ing Dhs998,339 and put it be­side the bed and started hav­ing sex with one of the sus­pects.

“He claimed that the other two women stole Dhs200,000 while he was busy.”

The man told po­lice that the women fled when he re­alised what was hap­pen­ing.

Of­fi­cers searched for the women and ar­rested them in Shar­jah.

“They con­fessed that they are pros­ti­tutes and they have sex with strangers for Dhs50,” the of­fi­cer said.

“They con­fessed to the theft and we found a clip on a mo­bile phone be­long­ing to one of them, they were cel­e­brat­ing how much they had stolen.”

The three women, aged 27, 32 and 35, have pleaded guilty to pros­ti­tu­tion.

The women face a sep­a­rate case in the mis­de­meanour court over charges of theft and stay­ing il­le­gally in the UAE. One is also charged with hav­ing sex with the vic­tim.
