A drunken Russian expat in Dubai punched a motorist in the face twice after saying the victim had parked in the wrong place, a court has been told.

The 24-year-old man was set to go on trial faced with consuming alcohol and assault charges but did not show up at the Dubai court on Sunday.
Prosecutors told that the assault on the 27-year-old Iranian occurred on 23 September.

The victim explained that he was parking his vehicle outside his apartment block when the Russian approached him and struck the windscreen in a rage. He went on to say that he got out the car and advised the Russian to calm down but was told he had parked in the wrong place and was blocking other vehicles.

The Iranian man then told the Russian that he was parked in a normal place but that his wife was going to move the car soon anyway, but the attacker then punched him twice in the nose, prompting his wife, 24, to call the police. However, by the time police arrived, the Russian had fled.

The policeman on duty told the court that the wife had said the attacker had gone inside the building, and when the managed to locate him, he was clearly very drunk. The officer added that the Russian admitted to punching the Iranian.
