The suspect robbed the victim of her bag at a bus station, after he approached her and offered his help to carry and place her bags on the bus.

The victim was suspicious and nervous by his bizarre behavior, so she ignored him and quickly got on the bus.

After the first stop, the victim realised that one of her bags was missing, and when she asked the driver if he had seen the suspect, he mentioned that the suspect never got on the bus.

However, the victim immediately filed a report at the police station.

The suspect managed to mug a bag that contained money, valuable jewellery, and an old phone belonging to the victim.

The stolen items worth over Dhs20,000.

After the incident, the victim was notified by her friend that the second suspect had contacted her regarding the stolen phone.

He claimed that he had cracked the phone’s password, and began to actually post the private photos on one of the victim’s social media accounts.
