(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) A teenager received permanent injuries while on a date, when his date's step-brother and an accomplice saw the pair together and assaulted him.
Two 20-year-old Sudanese students, identified as AK and HA, faced a charge of assault leading to permanent disability when their case was heard by the Court of First Instance on Sunday.
According to prosecution records, the duo assaulted the victim in June causing a fracture to his skull bone that will never fully heal.
The alleged victim, a 17-year-old student, also Sudanese, identified as AO, told the investigating prosecutor that he was with a Sudanese girl having dinner at a shopping mall in Rashidiyah when AK approached him.
AK said he wanted to talk to him out of the restaurant. He introduced himself as the girl's uncle, asked him about his relation to her and to walk with him to the parking lot. There, AO saw HA among several others. AO said that, all of a sudden, both HA and AK beat him up, pushed him to the ground and kicked him all over his body and head.
AO said he felt dizzy and then the security guards stepped in. Later, his brother took him to the hospital. AO's girlfriend later told him that HA was her step-brother. According to the forensic medicine report, AO was left with a skull-bone fracture because of the assault. The doctor put the permanent and visible injury at 3 per cent. The duo admitted to the assault charge during the prosecution investigation.
