Two Filipino men were sentenced Tuesday in a Dubai courtroom. The two men are said to have been charged with an attempted murder and consuming alcohol without a license.

Both men, ages 32 and 33 whose names have remained anonymous, are said to have been waiters at a restaurant. The two were observed to be extremely drunk and proceeded to get into an altercation with two other men after one of the defendants was seen harassing the witness’s girlfriend on the ground floor of an apartment building. As he attempted to protect the man that would eventually become his witness, the victim was said to have been followed and stabbed in the shoulder and the abdomen. The two men were arrested soon after police had uncovered the police report of the stabbing.
