Trio who erected political signs released on bail

Crime-Scene-Do-Not-Cross-Tape-2-psd36467KUWAIT: Sharq police released three people on bail following investigations after they were arrested for putting up political signs inside a mall in the area. The three Kuwaitis faced charges of breaking in and damaging property after they were arrested based on a report filed by the mall management's attorney. The three were released on bail on Friday morning and were greeted by supporters who had gathered outside the Sharq police station where they were subjected to investigation.

Attempted murder
A man was taken to the Farwaniya Hospital with a stab wound while police arrested two suspects following a fight reported in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh. The Syrian man was rushed to a hospital in an ambulance that arrived at the scene, accompanied by policemen. The police arrested his compatriots. The suspects were charged with attempted murder and referred to the proper authorities for further action.

Battery charges
Investigations were on in a case in which three police officers traded battery charges with three other people after a dispute that marred the elections to a co-op society board in Al-Andalus recently. Local police were first approached by three colleagues who pressed physical assault charges and provided medical reports diagnosing them as having suffered contusions. Shortly afterwards, a disabled citizen arrived at the police station and filed a case accusing the three officers of instigating the quarrel by physically assaulting him which prompted his two cousins to jump to his aid. The man also provided a medical report showing contusions he said sustained as a result of the officers' assault. (Rai)

Bid to smuggle ammo foiled
A man was forced to miss his flight as he was arrested on Friday for possessing bullets that he was trying to smuggle out of the country. Staff members at the Kuwait International Airport grew suspicious of a suitcase that was unusually heavy, prompting an extensive search. Police arrested the bag's American owner after recovering 25 rounds from the bag. The man was referred to the Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh police station for questioning.

Hero saves the day
A Good Samaritan Kuwaiti citizen recently saved a drowning child who had slipped into a swimming pool of a hotel. The Kuwaiti man was alerted by the cries of a couple shouting for help after their child fell into the pool. The man jumped into the water and successfully brought out the five-year-old who was rushed to the Amiri Hospital later for a medical checkup.

Delivery man held
A child was seriously injured after a delivery car ran over him in Saad Al-Abdullah recently. The accident happened outside a Kuwaiti man's house when the delivery man was reversing his car having made a delivery, and ended up hitting the customer's son who was lurking behind the vehicle. The child was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance and the delivery man was taken into police's custody for further action.

Suspected suicide
A domestic worker was hospitalized in a critical condition after she consumed some poisonous substance in an apparent attempt to commit suicide. The Ethiopian woman was brought to the Adan Hospital late Thursday night by her employer who found her unconscious at his house. The woman was admitted to the intensive care unit while the medical staff called the police. The officers questioned the Kuwaiti employer who said she found the woman in her room with paint lying nearby, suggesting that she had consumed the liquid in a bid to end her life. A case was filed for investigations.
