SHARJAH // A woman has been arrested for allegedly stabbing a compatriot with a broken liquor bottle during an argument, Sharjah police have reported.

Police found the Moroccan victim wounded at a flat in the Al Khan district. Blood was found in several places in the residential tower.

The victim, who told police that the woman had stabbed him with a piece of glass after an argument, was transferred to hospital.

The suspect was found at a hotel in a neighbouring emirate.

She denied the charges and said that the man was stabbed by his friend, who fled after the attack.

The quick action of the police may have saved the life of the victim, said Col Jihad Sahoo, director of the Sharjah Criminal Investigations Department.

Alcohol is foreign to this society and contrary to Islamic values, Col Sahoo added.
