Dog disappeared for nearly 24 hours after its owner was assaulted

A court in Dubai has ordered an Egyptian man to pay 40,000 dirhams ($10,890) in compensation for assaulting a man and emotionally distressing a dog.

The 32-year-old man attacked the dog owner on the street.

The Egyptian, returning from work, chased after his cat, which ran down the street.

The man walked past the victim, a 19-year-old Jordanian student who was walking his dog.

He heard the student tell the dog that the cat was afraid of him, prompting the man to insult and attack the teenager.

The wife and son-in-law fled from a nearby house but were unable to stop the attack.

The man tore off the student’s jacket and shirt and threw them on the ground.

The accident caused the dog to run away from the house. He returned the next day in a state of disaster.

Court records show that previously there was a dispute between the neighbors, which was resolved at the police station.

The Egyptian was accused of insulting and physically assaulting the dog’s owner on September 7 last year in Dubai’s Al Rashidia area.

He pleaded guilty in a Dubai court and was fined 5,000 dirhams in November.

Following the verdict, the dog owner filed a civil suit seeking damages.

“My client is ashamed of what happened and is emotionally affected after he was publicly assaulted outside his home,” said his lawyer Mohamed Najib.

“The dog is also affected. When the accident happened the dog ran away and disappeared for approximately 24 hours later when it was found he refused to eat or drink and my client had to take him to the vet clinic.

The civil case was referred to the Dubai Courts Arbitration Center, which reached an agreement on April 21, after which the perpetrators were ordered to pay damages of 40,000 dirhams. The man was also ordered to pay 1,000 dirhams.
