DUBAI // A taxi driver attacked a former girlfriend and stole a watch valued at Dh50 from her, a court heard today.

The Dubai Criminal Court of First Instance has charged SH A, a 31-year-old Pakistani, with assault and theft. Prosecutors said he attacked the Nepalese woman at a park before stealing her watch.

The two had a relationship, but the woman, who works a maid, had ended it after learning that he followed a different religion. SH A allegedly dragged the lady and slapped her on the face during the attack on March 30 this year.
