(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The Emirati student has been charged with the forced robbery and the damage of others' property when his case was brought before the Court of First Instance.

A 19-year-old student stood trial on Wednesday on the charge of forced entry into a college and the armed robbery of a safe containing Dh80,283.

The Emirati student has been charged with the forced robbery and the damage of others' property when his case was brought before the Court of First Instance.

The finance manager of the college located in Al Twar in Al Qusais said in the investigation that besides taking the safe which contained the cash, the robbers inflicted damage worth Dh4,170 on the door and windows of the college's accounting room.

"Around 6.40am on September 11, the college's security guard called me up on the phone and he sounded scared. He told me that there was a broken entry into the accounting room. I instantly informed the director and the police," said the Pakistani manager.

The manager added that through the security surveillance cameras, it was known that two unknown persons had gained access into the premises by smashing a window between their college and another varsity.

The pair took away the safe with the money and fled the scene.

According to the Criminal Evidence report, the DNA found on a bandage found in the accounting room and another found at the gate matched with the defendant's.

A police lieutenant said they arrested the defendant at about 8pm on September 23 for his involvement in the forced robbery of the college in Al Twar area.

"His presence at the crime scene was proven after the bandages with his DNA were found," the police officer said.

The officer added that injury marks were found on the defendant's foot. "When asked about the injury, the accused claimed he had stepped on a piece of burning coal in a cafe in Abu Dhabi.

The forensic report showed that the defendant also had scratches on his back and other injury marks. "It is highly probable that he sustained the injuries when he tried to cross under the college's fence which he and his accomplice had cut."

The defendant claimed he sustained the back injuries while sitting on a metal chair at the Criminal Investigation Department the day he was arrested.

"The CCTV footage also showed one of the two robbers walking barefooted and it seemed like he had a bandage on his left foot and was having difficulty in walking. We think it could well be the defendant as his DNA put him in the crime scene."
