Five men have been ac­cused of as­sault­ing a sales ex­ec­u­tive with pep­per spray, beat­ing him up and steal­ing Dh1.6 mil­lion from him.

In Septem­ber, the Chi­nese man con­cluded a deal, put Dh1.7 mil­lion cash in his back­pack and was headed out when a group of men stopped him and made away with the money. Five men were ar­rested: three Pak­ista­nis and two Afghans, who pleaded not guilty be­fore the Dubai Court of First In­stance yes­ter­day. The court will ap­point lawyers to de­fend the sus­pects when it re­con­venes on De­cem­ber 23. (Staff Re­port)
