Awad added that during the ride “The driver stopped behind the Air Defense Stadium, under the pretext that he was getting a bottle of water from the car trunk.”

Quoting her sister, she explained that: “When he stopped the car, I started to get nervous because of his behavior because all the way as he was looking at me in a terrifying way. He got out of the car to get a bottle of water from the trunk. He opened the car door and was holding a knife his hand. He told me to get out, and when I resisted him, I was seriously injured in my right hand.”

“Then I started to scream to call for help from any of the passers-by, but the driver immediately got into his car and ran away. After that, I went to the Air Defense Hospital to treat the wound I sustained in my right hand. Then the policemen came and I told them what had happened.”
