Men jailed for stealing electrical cables worth Dh14,000 from Dubai site
DUBAI// Two men have been jailed for six months each after being convicted of stealing electrical cables from a building site.
The Pakistanis, aged 25 and 30, made off with cables valued at Dh14,000 from the site in Al Qusais about 2am on January 28, 2015.
They tied up the site’s Indian guard before one of them sexually assaulted him.
“I was asleep, they tied me face down to my bed while one of them – I don’t know who because they were masked – assaulted me sexually using my own hair oil,” said the 30-year-old guard.
He said that when the man was finished, he removed a blanket that had been placed over his head and saw the defendants loading cables into their vehicle.
Today in court
The guard was locked in this room but climbed out through a window. “I went to a nearby mosque and called the engineer in charge,” he said.
The two were charged with armed robbery while one was also charged with sexual assault.
They denied all charges when they appeared in Dubai Criminal Court this month. They will be deported after serving six months in jail.
