Man threatened to drink woman's blood, court told

She says he was trying to force his way into her apartment.

DUBAI // A 31-year-old man is accused of threatening to drink a woman's blood if she did not allow him into her apartment.

The Pakistani worker, FH, has been charged in the Criminal Court of First Instance with issuing threats and inappropriate insults to an a woman from Azerbaijan.

Prosecutors said he told the 43-year-old visitor ZN that he would drink her blood if she did not open her door. He is also accused of sending her an inappropriate text message.

"He called me from different numbers and threatened to have sex with me," she testified in records.

Records show that he also threatened to have sex with her family members if she did not comply with his wishes. The records do not elaborate on how they knew each other.

Prosecutors say that FH confessed during investigations but said that he didn't remember the insults because he was intoxicated when he made them.

He was not present today but will appear before the court on September 25.
