Dubai: Prisoner assaults police officer on duty, rubs jalapeno in his eyes

Daijiworld Media Network - Dubai (SR)

Dubai, Aug 6: The Dubai court has charged an accused with physically assaulting an on-duty police officer and rubbing jalapeno pepper in his eyes to stop the cop from returning him into his cell.

The incident happened at Al Barsha detention centre on July 1, when the 43-year-old Emirati man kicked and pushed the police officer and rubbed pepper in his eyes, while resisting being taken back inside his cell.

As per Khaleej Times, during the prosecution investigation, the police officer said he was on duty at 4.30 am at Al Barsha detention centre. "My colleague took out two inmates from their cells as they were in charge of receiving the meals and checking whether those are enough for the detainees."

The officer said, a corporal opened the door for the two inmates to go back to their cells and then went to check the other ones. "At that moment, one of them talked to me to distract me while the other, the accused, who was standing behind me, took me by surprise as he rubbed two jalapeno peppers in my eyes, which made me lose sight temporarily," he said.

The officer was then kicked all over his body and the inmates tried to force him inside the detention. "I screamed for my colleague to come. The corporal stopped the detainees from further assaulting me," the officer told the prosecutor. The court will give its verdict on September 24.
