Police in the Saudi capital Riyadh arrested on Tuesday a Yemeni for killing a fellow national who had harassed a younger male relative of his.

Al-Aziziya police initially registered the case when a 20-year-old Yemeni who died as a result of a stab wound to the heart was admitted to a local hospital.

After searching for the culprits, the police found the alleged killer and two other suspects believed to be complicit in the murder case.

“He [culprit] admitted to killing the man after [the deceased] harassed one of his relatives,” police said, describing the witness accounts of the two other suspects as “similar.”

The police also said the Yemeni men were all illegal workers in Saudi Arabia.
