Dubai was rocked by another stabbing last night just months after a woman was murdered in Ibn Battuta car park.
A female medical student was stabbed and robbed of Dhs5000 as she returned to her car behind the Iranian Hospital in Satwa.
25-year-old Anooshka Khudabakshi is being treated for two wounds to her back after being attacked by a man who stole her handbag and left her for dead.
She was treated at the scene before being taken to Rashid Hospital where she is recovering.
Dubai Police have vowed to catch her attacker. A police spokesman said: "This is a very rare offence and is a disgusting crime. Residents should not feel worried about such rare crimes and be assured we will find the criminal."
