Bali authorities have detained a Dutch national after he raged on a public street in the Pererenan area on Monday (6/12).
The Head of the Mengwi Criminal Investigation Bureau, Iptu Ketut Wiwin Wirahadi, confirmed that a Dutch national, identified as Francisco Smith (a.k.a Yaninnick), was detained after raging on a public street and destroying the glass door of a minimarket in Pererenan, Mengwi.
“Yaninnick was raging and took off all his clothes on a public road,” Iptu Wirahadi said on Tuesday (7/12).
According to the information, the incident occurred when the man, who allegedly suffers from a mental disorder, arrived at the scene and began to rage. The scared people around the area immediately reported the incident to the police.
“Once he was detained by our officers, he didn’t say anything. He also seemed depressed during the interrogation,” Iptu Wirahadi added.
After he showed signs of depression, Wirahadi handed Yaninnick to a Public Civil Service Officer for a mental health evaluation.
The Head of Badung Public Civil Service Officer, IGAK Suryanegara, confirmed that he picked up Yaninnick from the police station and transported him to Mangupura Public Hospital in Kapal Mengwi to begin a medical investigation.
“We have communicated this issue with both the Immigration office and the Dutch Consulate, and if he’s proven to have a serious mental disorder, he’ll be transported to Bangli Mental Hospital for a proper medical treatment,” Suryanegara said.
Meanwhile, Yaninnick’s friends who were notified about the incident volunteered to cover all the damage of the minimarket as a show of support to their fellow expat.
