The occupants have filed a report to Ubud Police Department regarding this incident. The victims immediately reported their stolen cards to the bank to prevent additional losses.

According to the victims, the robber managed to get inside by breaking the lock. It was evident from the mess in the bedrooms that the perpetrator was in search of valuable items.
