The students assaulted the Arab visitor and broke his nose, according to court records.

Four students and an Arab visitor have stood trial in Dubai after getting involved in a street fight. The visitor ended up with a broken nose, while one of the students sustained injuries.

Court records show that the fight happened in October last year. The visitor was on his way back to his lodging in Damac Hills when he noticed the car of the four Arab students.

The man sitting next to the driver asked him how he was he doing and he replied with “Alhamdulillah (praise be to God)”. Out of nowhere, the man blurted out: “How can you say that when you are drunk?”

The four students then stepped out of the car and assaulted the man, breaking his nose, according to court records. The visitor reportedly fought back and attacked one of them, causing injuries.

All of them had been arrested as the incident reached the Dubai Police. They were also referred to the public prosecution, which submitted their case to the criminal court.
