Alleged victim: “I thought I was going to die
Alleged victim: “I thought I was going to die"

An enraged Bahraini allegedly tried to run over a man three times after accusing him of sleeping with his wife and assaulting his son. The incident happened outside Hamad Town Police Station, where the Bahraini victim had been summoned for questioning about the allegations. In his statement the victim, 33, said he was lucky to be alive after first being knocked down by the defendant, who then tried to drive over him twice.

“I thought I was going to die when he ploughed his vehicle into me from behind at 50km/h,” the victim told judges. “I flew more than two metres through the air and fell to the ground. “He then sped towards me and I suddenly found myself under his car. “I held onto the front bumper of the Toyota Corolla in an attempt to fight for my life.

“I knew that if I let go, I would be instantly killed. “He then reversed his vehicle over me again and I was in severe pain. “My left shoulder was broken in the attack, in addition to seven ribs, and I had many bruises on my body. “My head was covered in blood and I could not see anything, but luckily I survived.”

The incident happened in June last year and the driver, 29, has been charged with assault in the High Criminal Court. His wife was with him in the car at the time and a policeman who witnessed the episode said it was clear the defendant drove into the victim deliberately. “I saw the defendant accelerate towards the victim purposely,” the officer told judges. “I initially thought they were joking when I saw the victim sitting on the vehicle’s bonnet. “However, I realised the defendant was deliberately ploughing his vehicle into the victim and I rushed to take down his vehicle’s number plate.”

However, the defendant has denied assault and claims he drove into the man by accident. Video footage of the incident, taken from surveillance cameras at the police station, have been submitted to the court as evidence along with a medical examiner’s report, which confirmed the victim suffered several fractures. The trial has been adjourned until June 13 for a medical examiner to give evidence.
