Police have arrested a British woman and three men - two Americans and one Dutch - on charges of assaulting an African national and robbing him of his personal belongings, says a report in the Arabic daily Arrayah. The incident occurred last July when the Ethiopian who works for a money exchange house received a call from the woman requesting him to meet her outside a restaurant in the Old Salata area on the pretext of making a bank remittance. He did not have any inkling that it was going to be a planned physical assault on him. He met her and got into her car but was shocked to find two others on the back seat. After driving for a short while the two men began to hit him violently. They stopped the car and pulled him out and robbed him of his wallet and mobile phone. Then one of them caught hold of his neck while the other hit him with a bottle on his head. He fell unconscious and they left. Fortunately some passers by noticed him and called the ambulance and police. He was rushed to the Hamad Hospital and was given timely medical care. After coming around he gave a graphic description of the people who assaulted him. Based on his information officers of the criminal investigation and follow-up department in the Ministry of Interior arrested the woman who disclosed the identities and location of the other culprits including the Dutch national who is accused of helping in planning the assault.
