A man with initials JMJN from New Zealand has been rushed to the hospital after getting assaulted in Canggu.
The Head of the North Kuta Criminal Investigation Bureau, Iptu I Made Purwantara confirmed that a fellow expat with initials YEY (aged 25) was arrested after assaulting JMJN on Saturday evening (16/10) in Canggu, North Kuta. “The perpetrator has been arrested for assaulting a fellow expat near Berawa Beach on Saturday evening around 12:50am.” Iptu Purwantara said.
According to the information from the witness at the scene, the incident occurred when the victim and his partner were on their way out to the parking lot that is located across the street from a café that they just visited on Saturday evening. When they both attempted to cross the street as a security guard of the café assisted them to stop the traffic, the perpetrator who rode a motorbike with high speeds didn’t attempt to stop his vehicle and bumped into the victim’s body.
Shortly after, JMJN immediately confronted YEY and warned him to be more careful. Becoming offended, the perpetrator grabbed a bottle of beer that he had and began assaulting the victim, causing JMJN to suffer from some serious injuries to his neck. Fortunately, people nearby including multiple security guards managed to stop the brawl and rushed the victim to the hospital to receive medical attention.
“The victim is still undergoing surgery at the Siloam Hospital due to his severe injury while the perpetrator has been detained by police.” Iptu Purwantara concluded.
