An Indonesian football player named Beto Goncalves was mugged while riding a motorbike in Kuta on Sunday (16/1).
Goncalves, who plays for the Indonesian football team Madura United, was mugged by a stranger when he rode a motorbike with his daughter in Jalan Basangkasa Legian, Kuta on Sunday evening.
His wife, Dewi Costa, shared the incident on her Instagram account to warn others to be careful when riding around the Kuta area at night.
“Please be careful if you ride your motorbike at night time. Somebody on a motorbike snatched my husband’s necklace on Jalan Raya Basangkasa 30 minutes ago. But praise the Lord he wasn’t injured,” said Dewi. The victim, who was on a motorbike with his daughter, was approached by a stranger also on a motorbike.
“My husband first thought that the man was one of his friends. Then suddenly, the man grabbed Goncalves’ chest and snatched his necklace and ripped his shirt,” Dewi added. Goncalves was thankful that he managed to keep his balance on the motorbike, preventing possible injury to him and his daughter.
Meanwhile, the Head of Kuta Criminal Investigation Bureau, AKP I Nyoman Sudarma, confirmed that he hadn’t received any report concerning the incident.
“We haven’t received any report from the victim until today,” AKP Sudarma said on Monday (17/1).
