Pick­pock­ets made Dh­s50k

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Aj­man Po­lice have ar­rested two men who are ac­cused of mak­ing more than Dhs50,000 from pick­pock­et­ing. One of the two men, both from an un­named African coun­try, would spit on the vic­tim, seem­ingly by ac­ci­dent, and then make a fuss of try­ing to help the vic­tim clean it off. The sec­ond would steal wal­lets and cash while they were dis­tracted. Colonel Ab­d­u­al­lah Al Ma­troushi, Di­rec­tor of the Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Depart­ment at Aj­man Po­lice, said: “Po­lice iden­ti­fied the sus­pects and their lo­ca­tion and caught the two sus­pects in the act as they tried to steal from a new vic­tim.” They were found with Dhs56,000. Po­lice urged the pub­lic to be wary of men hang­ing around cash ma­chines.
