The First High Criminal Court has decided to adjourn the case involving a Bahraini man who’s accused of attempting to kill his neighbour in Muharraq Governorate earlier this year to November 3, 2019.
As reported earlier, the defendant is accused of stabbing the victim several times over a dispute about a parking spot in the neighbourhood. According to court files, the incident took place on February 12, 2019, in Galali, a town that is located few hundred metres to the east of Bahrain International Airport. The suspect was reportedly arrested on the same day.
The results of the investigation revealed that the suspect stabbed the victim several times using a kitchen knife.
According to the Chief Prosecutor, the investigations revealed that the accused had the intention to kill the victim, as he prepared a knife for this purpose and monitored the victim while the latter was walking on the public road. “He stabbed him several times, which led to his falling on the ground.
The accused then continued to stab the victim with the intention of killing him. “He later fled the scene and the victim was rushed to the hospital where he received treatment,” Mr Fakhro added. The suspect denied the accusations, claiming that he was attacked by the victim, using a knife and a fistfight broke out.
However, an eyewitness informed the prosecutors that he saw the suspect stabbing the victim while the latter was on the floor. The witness also informed that the suspect fled the scene and left the victim bleeding on the floor.
On July 9, the court ordered to conduct a mental evaluation of the suspect to determine if he was responsible for his actions.
