A BURGLARY in an apartment in the heart of Manama has left an expatriate family in a state of shock.

Gold jewellery worth BD2,000 and BD200 in cash were stolen from the Indian family’s home in just four hours last weekend.

A complaint has been registered with the Bab Al Bahrain police station following the incident between 7pm and 11pm on August 23 in the second-floor apartment of a four-storey residential building near the American Mission Hospital, Manama.

However, the 35-year-old senior human resources professional, who lives with his wife and two-year-old daughter in the apartment, said they were scared after their kitchen knives were found near the broken door.



“This is our first bad experience in the five years we have lived in Bahrain,” he told the GDN.

“We have registered a complaint after police and CID visited the scene.”

The man, who requested anonymity, expressed fears for his family. “What if my wife and daughter were alone and sleeping in the apartment? The robbery could have taken a nasty turn.

“The main door was broken so apparently heavy iron rods were used.”

The family and an Indian man, who shares the apartment, were out when the burglary took place.

They returned to find the main door broken. The friend’s room was not touched but the family’s bedroom was broken into and ransacked.
“Two of the three cupboards were broken, everything was strewn around and gold jewellery worth over BD2,000 and BD200 cash were missing.

“There was a similar burglary attempt in the neighbouring flat, but fortunately the family was on vacation and had taken all the valuables.”
The man pointed out that the building had no CCTV and no security guard, despite repeated requests to the manager.
