dubai — A shep­herd has been charged in a Dubai court with phys­i­cally as­sault­ing his wife’s for­mer boss and caus­ing him a per­ma­nent in­jury.

Court records show the Su­danese man, 49, jumped on the back of the vic­tim and bit his left ear, con­se­quently cut­ting part of it. He ad­mit­ted in the Court of First In­stance on Thurs­day that he bit the ear of his wife’s for­mer boss, and cut a small part of it. The in­ci­dent oc­curred on May 14 in front of the Dubai Courts and was re­ported to Al Rafaa po­lice sta­tion.

The Su­danese com­plainant, a restau­rant owner, said: “I was at the Dubai Courts to fol­low up on a labour case with a fe­male staff. I spot­ted the de­fen­dant fol­low­ing me closely so I stopped and asked him what he wanted but he did not re­spond.”

The com­plainant then took the stairs out­side the courts and then the ac­cused jumped on his back, bit­ing his left ear.

“As I took him away from me, my ear was cut and I saw the miss­ing part in the de­fen­dant’s mouth. Peo­ple who hap­pened to be around broke the fight and I was taken to hos­pi­tal af­ter bleed­ing a lot. I learned later that this woman em­ployee was the de­fen­dant’s wife,” the com­plainant told the prose­cu­tor.

A po­lice­man said: “Af­ter the in­ci­dent was re­ported, we went to the scene and found the vic­tim bleed­ing while the de­fen­dant’s clothes were torn. The vic­tim told us the ac­cused was fol­low­ing him af­ter the labour case hear­ing that he had with his wife.”

The de­fen­dant told the of­fi­cer the other man asked him why he was fol­low­ing him. When he replied that he was about to leave the place the other man threat­ened “walk out and I will eat you”.

“That made me an­gry and pro­voked me into at­tack­ing him,” the of­fi­cer quoted the ac­cused as say­ing. The ac­cused claimed dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion that he was just try­ing to pro­tect him­self and stop the other man from as­sault­ing him.
