An Ethiopian Maid who stabbed employer in Fujairah seized


She fled to Abu Dhabi where she was arrested after refusing to pay taxi
An Ethiopian housemaid who stabbed her 50-year-old Emirati female employer in Fujairah and fled the house was arrested in Abu Dhabi with the help of a taxi driver, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

The driver, Mufidul Islam Sadeq, reported the maid to the Abu Dhabi police after she refused to pay him transport fare apparently because she had no money.

Sadeq locked the maid in his car near the police station before going in to report her. When police came to enquire about her refusal to pay, they noticed blood stains on her clothes, prompting them to take her into the station.

“Police then suspected that she could have been involved in the Fujeirah murder attempt…after interrogation, she confessed to stabbing the woman in her chest and face,” the Arabic language daily Emirat Alyoum said.

It said police paid Sadeq the taxi fare and also gave him a cash reward for helping them catch the maid.
