DUBAI: A builder kicked out of an apartment over psychoactive drugs threatened to decapitate the landlady unless she forfeited Dhs2,000, a jury heard on Tuesday.

The Asian man, 45, allegedly stormed the apartment in Al Muraqqabat area on June 6, pressed a big knife against the neck of the Vietnamese hairdresser, 28, and threatened to decapitate her.

Prosecutors demanded the Dubai Criminal Court’s jury to hand him a tough punishment. The jury failed to question him as there was no translator. The hearing was adjourned till Oct.7.

The victim claimed the defendant was in the habit of abusing psychoactive drugs. She resolved to kick him out of the flat. He engaged her in a dispute and walked away. The situation seemed to have returned to normal.

“I was in the apartment when he showed up with a big knife. He placed it on my neck while demanding me to pay him Dhs2,000 otherwise he was going to cut off my head,” she explained to prosecutors.

Her countryman – an operator – managed to subdue the defendant with the help of two other men. They forced the defendant out of the apartment. The hairdresser supposed he wanted her to pay for kicking him out.
