Ajman Criminal Court has sentenced six Asians to jail for one year for assaulting and robbing spa employees at knifepoint.

According to police investigation, two employees filed a report stating that they had been been assaulted and robbed at knifepoint while they were in the massage parlour. The parlour had turned into a place of residence for the employees after it was closed in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

One of the workers said they had ordered food from a restaurant, and shortly after the delivery man arrived, the defendants entered behind him. They carried knives, spoke Urdu and wore masks to disguise their faces.
