Jobless man accused of threat to kill

A jobless man has been accused of threatening to kill a producer inside her car with a screwdriver at a shopping mall and stealing her Dh15 to buy food to eat.

The 48-year-old Filipino man, R.K., was said to have opened the door of the car of the Lebanese producer when she was about to drive away from the parking lot of a shopping mall.

Then he pointed the screwdriver at her and threatened to kill her before he asked her to empty her pockets in January 2015.

The Lebanese woman was said to have cried in fear before she opened her purse and gave the suspect, who had covered his face with a white cloth, the Dh15 that she had.Prosecutors charged R.K. with threatening the producer and stealing her money.

The Filipino entered a not guilty plea when he appeared before the Dubai Court of First Instance on Monday.
