The media spokesman for the Kingdom’s Qassim region police said authorities were able to identify and arrest the perpetrator.

The assault was the result of a previous dispute between the man and his ex-wife, SPA reported.

“The initial inference procedures indicated that the offender was in violation of the border security system,” the press agency said.

SPA also reported that initial legal measures were taken against him, and he was referred to the Public Prosecution Branch.

Last week, Saudi Arabia’s Attorney General Sheikh Saud bin Abdullah al-Mujib said the Kingdom is keen to combat cross-border crimes, SPA reported.

In a speech delivered at The International Conference on the Role of Public Prosecutions in Combating Transnational Crimes held in Egypt’s Cairo, al-Mujib praised the role of these agencies in combating cross-border crimes.

“The conference comes within the system of complementary work and international cooperation in combating these crimes,” according to SPA.
