The Pakistani was also fined Dhs2,000 by Dubai Court of First Instance on Monday.
Official records state that the 23-year-old defendant stalked the 42-year-old Bangladeshi victim while he was collecting rent from tenants.
After he was handed Dhs6,000 from tenants of two villas in Hor Al Anz he was taken by surprise when the defendant jumped on him with a knife and stabbed him twice in the abdomen.
The assault continued and the victim was stabbed six more times in the chin, arms and other parts of his body.
The victim’s screams caught the attention of a police car patrolling the area and the robber ran off empty handed. He was later detained.
