According to Emarat Al Youm, Public Prosecution investigations found that the GCC national assaulted the paramedic, as he believed that the nursing staff was responsible for the death of his father.

The accused admitted that he was in shock on the day of the incident when he was informed that his father had died of a neck injury. His sister had told him that paramedics had botched the transfer of their father.

The man then asked the victim if she was part of the paramedic team that handled his father's case and slapped her when she confirmed.
