June 23, 2014, 9:11 am

A Kuwaiti man survived a gunshot fired by thieves who mugged him in Salmiya early Saturday morning.

The man was rushed to Mubarak Hospital after the bullet settled in his face, and admitted inside the intensive care unit. He was able to speak to detectives after regaining consciousness.

The man explained that he was coming out of a friend’s apartment when two people tried to mug him at gunpoint. One of the suspects shot him when he resisted, which was the last thing that he remembers, the man said. He added that he discovered after regaining consciousness that his wallet and smart phone were stolen. Investigations are ongoing to identify and arrest the suspects.
