DUBAI // A prostitute had sex with a man while a colleague robbed him of Dh47,000, Dubai Criminal Court heard on Sunday.
Prosecutors told judges that on March 8 one woman lured the Pakistani salesman into her apartment to have sex while the other robbed him.
The Ugandan women, both 26, were charged with prostitution and theft. The salesman was charged with having sex outside of wedlock with one of the women.
Both defendants confessed to working as prostitutes but one of them denied the theft, while the other confessed.
The 28-year-old man was not present in court to enter a plea but he had earlier told prosecutors that he works for a company in Al Satwa and was sent by his manager to transfer the money to Pakistan. However, he took a detour after one of the women winked at him.
“I knew she was a prostitute, so I asked her for sex and we agreed on Dh20 then went to her apartment nearby and had sex,” said the man in his confession.
When he left, he said he noticed that the money was missing. He thought he dropped it on the bed so returned to the apartment but no one was there. “I realised I was robbed so I called the police,” said the salesman.
Police apprehended all three of them.
A verdict is due on May 11.
