5 mug salesman, steal Dh1.6m in broad daylight
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)
