Dubai - The Dubai Police have arrested four Arab suspects, including two Emiratis, in connection with a fight that left one of them seriously injured. The suspects, two of whom are Saudis, used knives and swords in the fight that reportedly began over an accidental physical contact outside the washroom of a hotel, the police said.

Major-General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, Assistant Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police for Criminal Investigation, said a security guard of the hotel in the Al Rigga area notified the police on Wednesday about the fight. A team from Al Murraqabat police station was dispatched to the site, where the suspects aged between 25-29 were found injured. They were rushed to Rashid Hospital.

The interrogation of the injured Saudi revealed that the brawl started over an accidental physical contact outside the washroom of the hotel. “One of the suspects’ shoulders brushed with another. This led to an exchange of insults, followed by an argument and a fight,” Al Mansouri said.
