Kuwaiti police arrested on early Tuesday, March 19, 2019, a Jordanian citizen after stealing an amount of money and some personal possessions from an Indian citizen, according to Al Rai Kuwaiti newspaper.

In the details, an Indian citizen submitted a medical report to the security men stating that he had been hit by a brass knuckle, causing him serious injury that needed a surgical intervention, and by asking him why he was injured, he said that as he was driving in one of the areas, two people stopped him and one of them claimed that he was a detective inspector.

The victim added that the criminal asked for his ID, checked his car in full and seized an amount of money and some personal possessions.

When the victim doubted that he might be lying and asked for evidence, the criminal beat him with a brass knuckle on his face, causing the victim to lose consciousness.

The Jordanian expatriate was caught while he was trying to flee the country at the Kuwait International Airport, according to a security source.

The source added that the suspect was referred to the General Directorate of Criminal Investigation where he was confronted with the charge but denied, and after the suspect was put in a police lineup, the victim was able to identify him at the first glance.

Investigation revealed that the Jordanian expatriate and his partner spent the money they stole and the police are still looking for the partner in the incident, which made his statements the main defendant, in preparation for referring both of them to the Public Prosecution to take legal action against them.

According to a security source, a case was recorded and the necessary investigations will be carried out.
