Maid stole cash and fled

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

A ten-month-old baby was left alone in­side a Dubai apart­ment while the maid car­ing for him es­caped from her spon­sor’s home af­ter steal­ing jewellery and cash. The 30-year old In­done­sian maid left the Arab boy asleep on the bed and left the apart­ment while the food was still cook­ing on the stove. She ad­mit­ted to the charges of theft and en­dan­ger­ing the baby’s life when she ap­peared at Dubai Court of First In­stance on Wed­nes­day morn­ing. Prose­cu­tors said that on Novem­ber 1, 2011, the 33-year-old Egyp­tian em­ployer left the flat in the Gar­dens to pick up her son from school while the maid re­mained home to care for the baby. An hour later the woman re­turned home to find the door locked and when she en­tered the flat the maid was miss­ing. The woman said in records: “I looked for her all around and she was gone. I found food on the stove boil­ing and my baby was still asleep in his room. I thanked God that he was sleep­ing.” She said that she found that the maid stole the cash, a gold ring and a white Nike sport shoes. She called Dubai Po­lice and launched a com­plaint. A ver­dict will be is­sued later this month.
