Dubai: A thief who stole a mobile phone was caught as the owner of the phone called him when he happened to have been stopped by a policeman in Dubai over a random check.
The thief was confused when the policeman stopped him in Al Quoz as the owner of the phone kept ringing on his number.
The thief was arrested as the policeman heard the phone owner claiming it is his phone and that it was stolen.
The victim said in records that he was walking home with a friend when a group of people attacked them with a knife.
The victim was transferred to the hospital for treatment while policemen were dispatched to the area to look for the attackers.
One of them said that he stopped the defendant because he was walking suspiciously and his phone was ringing many times.
“I asked him to answer the call and put the phone on speaker. The victim spoke and said it is his phone,” said the policeman.
