Brigadier Dr Tariq Tahlak, Director of Naif Police Station, revealed that the officers were patrolling the Freij Murar area around 2pm on Friday, when they noticed a huge crowd gathered near a grocery store.

Upon investigating the matter, they discovered an Arab national brandishing two knives hysterically in the middle of the crowd. The man had just stabbed a compatriot multiple times, and was threatening to attack anyone who tried to approach him.

“The officers reacted professionally to the incident and prevented the stabber from committing further assaults to anyone, as they swiftly surrounded, disarmed and tied him up, while waiting for backup,” Brig Dr Tahlak said.

“After questioning the witnesses, it was understood that both the offender and victim had entered a grocery store together but, when the victim was about to leave, the former attacked him with multiple stabs to the back. He then left him bleeding heavily on the ground,” he explained.

“The offender started screaming and waving the knives to scare the crowd. That is when the two officers arrived on the scene. They succeeded in handling the situation and ensured everyone’s safety,” he added.

Paramedics who arrived on the crime scene were able to administer first aid to the victim; however, he succumbed to his injuries.

The criminal was referred to the Public Prosecution for further legal action.
