Ras Al Khaimah - The male defendant allegedly injected drugs into the young woman, court records show.



Two young Arabs have stood trial at the Ras Al Khaimah Criminal Court on charges of drug abuse. One of them, a woman, was found unconscious in her car.
The male defendant allegedly injected drugs into the young woman, court records show. He was also charged for refusing to give a urine sample after being taken into police custody.
The woman, on the other hand, was accused of abusing narcotics and driving under the influence of drugs.
The duo admitted to the crime, saying they had just met one day prior to their arrest.
"A day before the incident, I had gone to the pharmacy, bought a 3mm syringe and injected her with narcotic crystals," the young man told the court.
He added that he just saw the woman unconscious in her car.
The second defendant confessed that she consumed drugs and drove her way to the Ras Al Khaimah beach. She also confirmed that the man gave her a shot of narcotics the day before.
"But he knew that I lost my consciousness because of drug abuse," the woman said.
When the police arrested the duo, they appeared to be under the influence of narcotics.
The unconscious woman was rushed to a hospital, and the man was taken to the police station. He refused to provide a urine sample for "personal reasons", he said.
The court adjourned the case until next month for the ruling.
