Dubai: The body of the Arab man, who was stabbed by his European girlfriend in the early hours of Saturday for not marrying her after a four- year relationship, has been handed over to his family.
A security source at Dubai Police said that the operations room received a call from a European woman, saying there was a person who had been stabbed in her apartment in Al Nahda area.
Police found the 38-year-old Arab man with multiple stab wounds lying on the bed. The European woman, 32, who was his girlfriend, then confessed that she had stabbed him and tried to commit suicide but she could not.
The woman confessed to being the man’s girlfriend and that they had been in a relationship for four years. She said that she had asked him to marry her many times but he had been stalling for a long time.
She said that she wanted to have children with him legally but he did not seem to care and was not doing anything about it.
The woman was a freelancer and businesswoman, while the man worked in a shop and she said that she lent him large sums of money many times.
On the day of the incident, the woman said that the man came home very drunk, and when she tried to talk to him about the same topic, he would not answer her. She said she thought he was ignoring her on purpose and so she went to the kitchen and took a knife and stabbed him once and, when he opened his eyes, she stabbed him once more and he died.
The woman was also drunk that night. It was reported that after the man died, the woman broke down and cried and tried to commit suicide, but she could not go through with it and called the police.
The case has been transferred to the Public Prosecution.
