Two women were sentenced to three years in prison and a Dh20,500 fine for assaulting and robbing a man after luring him with a massage offer.

They photographed the man in a compromising position and used them to blackmail him.

According to Arabic daily Emarat Al Youm, the gang lured the man through social media, pretending to offer a massage service.

When the man responded to their post and went to their residence in Al Barsha, a woman pulled him in through the door. Three others assaulted him and threatened him with a knife.

The man was then photographed and forced to disclose his bank details, which the women used to withdraw Dh20,500.

The victim identified the two women in a police line-up.

The first defendant confessed to her crimes and admitted that she was part of a gang of women who lured men online using pictures of "European women".

According to her statement, the victims would be detained, intimidated, humiliated and forced to disclose their bank details.
