WATCH: Man stabbed to death after fighting wife's ‘sexual harasser’ on Egypt beach
Warning: Viewer discretion advised
A man was stabbed to death in front of his wife and beachgoers in a public beach in Alexandria.
The perpetrator was arrested after much hassle as it took them around an hour to restrain and detain him. The prosecution is now investigating the murder which happened at Abu Yusuf Beach.
The horrifying footage of the murder was circulated on social media.
Initial reports said a fight erupted between the deceased and the alleged murderer, who had attempted to harass the man’s wife. The victim’s family however denied this and said they will wait for the investigation results before revealing any details.
Mohammed Rashad, the brother of the victim’s wife, said what’s being circulated about the incident is not true, adding that they will break their silence after the prosecution wraps up its investigation.
In the crime scene, workers have narrated conflicting reports of what happened after the man was killed. Some said the murderer stayed in the sea while holding the knife and others said he used the personal water craft until he lost his balance and they managed to arrest him.
Some beachgoers have called on the authorities to deploy more policemen to protect them; however relevant officials said it’s unlikely that they will intensify security and search those who enter public beaches, especially during the crowded summer season.
