The Yemeni is accused of breaking into an auto repair shop in Karama in the late hours of June 6 this year. However, the theft attempt was foiled by the owner of the shop.

The owner was sleeping at the time but woke up in time after hearing loud sounds. He saw the accused holding a big screwdriver, and as the latter tried to flee, he grabbed him and didn't let him free until the police arrived. During his interrogation, the suspect admitted to having broken into a typing office the same night and decamping with Dh4,000 cash. He also admitted to stealing more than Dh1,500 from a barber's shop.
