(MENAFN - Arab News) An Asian expatriate was assaulted and robbed of his belongings in Riyadh on Tuesday evening.
Ahmed Hilmy Sattar, who has been working in the Kingdom for more than 30 years, and was heading home for his annual vacation, said six masked men with guns got out of a brand new GMC vehicle, attacked and then robbed him.
"They took SR3,000, my iqama and other valuables in my possession," Sattar said.
The incident occurred when Sattar was going to a shop in Farazdak Street near Al-Obeid Hospital. He said he was about to go home to Colombo. "I'm still traumatized," Sattar said.
He said that when he went to the nearest police station to lodge a complaint, the policemen on duty were not interested in filing a report.
"So I went home disappointed that I could not file a first information report at the police station."
Sattar said an eye specialist found that he sustained internal injuries to his right eye. He had been afraid that he might lose sight in the eye.
