According to Al Bayan, two police officers arrived at the scene to find the tourist asleep on a couch in the hotel lobby. When they woke him up and asked him for an explanation, he told them he was tired and asked them to let him sleep.
The police asked him either to book a room at the hotel if he wanted to sleep there, or to leave if he did not want to be taken to the police station.
To the surprise of the police, the tourist got up and took off all his clothes, except his underwear. He then started shouting in anger and insulting them.
The police tried to arrest the man, but he resisted them and fled. Despite strong resistance, the police managed to hold him.
During his numerous attempts to escape, the tourist threw himself on the police car, injuring his head and causing it to bleed.
An ambulance was called to treat him before he was transferred to the police station.
Investigations are still ongoing to determine why the tourist repeatedly visited the hotel and slept on the sofas in the lobby.
