DUBAI // A Pakistani man was attacked with a baseball bat by a man he had fought with three years ago, a court heard on Tuesday.
“I was in Al Mamzar on October 2 last year when a man I had a fight with about three years ago arrived with a number of men and they assaulted me with their fists and then with a baseball bat,” said the 22-year-old.
“I only woke up at the hospital afterwards,” he said.
A medical report said he was left with a 10 per cent disability to his jaw.
The victim’s brother said he witnessed the assault and tried to break the men up, then called the police.
The defendant, an unemployed Emirati, was arrested while the others escaped.
He was not at Dubai Criminal Court on Tuesday to answer a physical assault charge.
The next hearing will be on January 12.
