A 29-year-old man with the initials WN was detained and transported to a mental hospital for causing a disturbance in his neighborhood in Denpasar.

A medical official of West Denpasar II, Nopi, confirmed that the man was detained after nearby residents reported his bizarre behavior.

He had been going through a rough time, as he got laid off from his job and was left by his partner several months prior.
