College student kidnaps his female co-student
A college student took revenge on his female co-student who refused to marry him by kidnapping her and stealing her jewelry. The 21-year-old college student kidnapped the 20-year-old woman after doping her by putting a sedative in her juice. He held her for three days in a villa in a rural area near Cairo, where he also stole her jewelry. (Al Akhbar) [source]
I’ve heard stories that are in the same ballpark of crazy as this one, which leads me to wonder if some Arab men have difficulty dealing with rejection. And for some reason it tends to be from the upper classes. Then again maybe we’re no different from the rest of the world.
