A woman in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, has stabbed her lover to death after he refused to marry her. She then called Dubai Police and waited beside his body for authorities to arrive, cops claim. Police said that the 32-year-old Russian woman confessed to killing her 38-year-old Arab lover – and said she tried to kill herself by slitting her wrists.
“She called and said that there is a person in her flat who had been stabbed and gave us the address in the Al Nahda area in Dubai,” a police official said.
“We rushed to the scene and saw the man on the bed. She confessed that she killed him and tried to commit suicide but she couldn’t cut her wrist,” the police official added.
According to cops, the pair were “under the influence of alcohol” when the incident happened on Saturday morning. The woman told police that she had been in a relationship for four years with the man she killed.
She claimed she had asked him to marry her – and even given him money – but he wouldn’t and “kept delaying the matter”.
The police official said of the incident: “She was dreaming of having a family. She talked with him about that, as she wanted to have babies. He was under the influence of alcohol and didn’t say a word. She went to the kitchen and stabbed him twice and then fell crying before calling Dubai Police.”
The woman has been transferred to Dubai Public Prosecution to finish their investigation. The deceased man’s body has been handed over to his family, police added.
