Brazen Thief Steals Dhs 110,000 After Offering Massage For Just Dhs 50

A woman is being allegedly charged after stealing Dhs 110,000 from a man after offering him a massage for Dhs 50 last July, according to Khaleej Times.

Man approached by the suspect while shopping

Identified as a 28-year-old man, the victim went shopping in Al Ras’ electronics market carrying Dhs 110,000 in his shoulder bag. The money belonged to his employer. He was approached by the suspect, identified as a 49-year-old Azerbaijani woman, asking if he wanted a massage. The victim said yes and was taken to her studio apartment.

Suspect steals Dhs 110,000 after attack

As they arrived inside the apartment, the victim tried to hug the woman. She screamed and an accomplice entered and attacked him with a metallic bar. He collapsed and the duo escaped from the house with the money, locking him inside the apartment. The victim discovered his bag was left with nothing but a Dhs 10 banknote.

Police alerted

Cops from Naif Police Station arrived at the apartment and broke open the door to help recover the victim. They discovered the home was used for prostitution. CCTV footage from shops around the area showed the couple jumped to the neighbouring building’s rooftop and escaped through the staircase. The couple were eventually caught and are now standing trial.

As of now, the trial has been adjourned for 20th December.
