DUBAI // A Nigerian man had nine teeth knocked out in an attack by three compatriots.

The 44-year-old victim was contacted by one of the defendants who asked to meet urgently, Dubai Criminal Court was told.

“I left work in Sharjah and met with them in Dubai,” he said. As he arrived in Naif, one of the men, a 24-year-old, dragged him out of the cab and assaulted him.

“I was injured and my teeth fell [out],” said the victim.

An ambulance arrived at the scene and took him to Al Baraha hospital where he was treated before heading to a police station to report the assault.

Court records did not mention the reason the victim was attacked.

The three defendants denied physically assaulting the victim and told the judge he had dropped the charges against them.

The next hearing will be on November 6.
