The First High Criminal Court yesterday sentenced a man to three years imprisonment for punching another man in the face and breaking his teeth in Riffa last year.
The defendant was previously charged by the Public Prosecution with assault after investigations showed that he had punched the victim on the back of his head and his mouth, breaking his front teeth as shown in the medical reports, which also mentioned that the assault caused a two percent permanent disability to the victim.
Court files showed that the case was first reported to East Riffa Police Station on September 18, 2019, by the victim’s brother, who informed that his brother, the victim, was attacked by a group of people in East Riffa area.
The brother told the cops that the incident took place near the police station and that his brother lost his consciousness and had to be rushed to the Military Hospital. “My brother told me that three individuals, traveling in a white vehicle, stopped and suddenly attacked him on his head using a sharp object before he could realize what was going on. “He said he fell on the floor and they repeatedly punched him and kicked until he fainted,” the victim’s brother told the cops. No further details on the other two suspects were available.
