Tunisian woman who returned from work opened her door in Bur Dubai flat to find a stranger sleeping in her bed.
Dubai – It was just another day in this Tunisian woman’s life. She returned home after work as usual, opened the door to her flat in Bur Dubai, and … found a stranger sleeping in her bed.
She was shocked, but not shocked enough to prevent her from taking a selfie with the intruder in bed. She called the police and posted the photograph on her social media accounts with a quirky caption: “I got home and found a drunk intruder asleep in my bed. He tried to steal, but he failed.” The selfie went viral.
Assistant Commander-in-Chief of the Dubai Police for Criminal Investigation, Major-General Khalil Ibrahim Al Mansouri, said the intruder was not a thief as the woman suggested, but a drunk.
Director of Bur Dubai police station Colonel Abdullah Khadem said the incident was reported on Thursday. “Investigations revealed that the man was visiting the watchman of the building, who is his friend. He consumed alcohol and felt sleepy. He sneaked into the woman’s room and slept in her bed,” said Col Khadem.
The intruder has been arrested and charged with trespassing. He affirmed that the intruder did not intend to steal anything from the woman’s room.
