The drunk supervisor had allegedly been playing loud music that disturbed his roommate's sleep.
A supervisor has been charged in the Court of First Instance after he allegedly assaulted a roommate with a chair, resulting in a permanent injury.
The Indian supervisor, 56, was allegedly drunk when he attacked the victim, a Sudanese man, with an old metallic chair that had sharp edges, severely injuring one of his left fingers.
The complaint was registered on August 4, 2017, at Al Raffa police station.
The 37-year-old taxi driver said that he shares a room with the defendant and other men.
"I was sleeping when I suddenly woke up to the loud music coming from the accused's mobile phone. He didn't care that I was very exhausted. He was aware I had been working all night long.
"He did not care and would not stop the music even though I told him it was annoying me," the taxi driver told the prosecutor.
"After I stood up and told him to turn the music off, he left the room. I thought he did it in response to my request. But he came back holding an old metallic chair with sharp edges.
"He hit the door with that chair and then threw it on me. I tried to avoid it but it landed on my left hand, causing a deep cut."
The victim closed the door after the defendant walked out of the room.
"He then threw something on the door again. He was obviously drunk and was arrested after I called the police," the victim recounted.
The forensic examination report showed the victim was left with a permanent finger injury due to the assault.
The supervisor admitted during the Public Prosecution's investigation that he was drunk when he assaulted his roommate with the chair.
