According to the report filed by the victim, Arienda was assaulted by the expat on Monday (22/3) around 8:00am when she was requesting he paid the USD 55 (IDR 800,000) fee for the two dates he had with her at his villa, which lead to Arienda filing a report regarding the incident to the police on Thursday (15/4). “The victim reported that she was assaulted by getting punched in several parts of her body as well as being threatened with a knife.” AKP Hadimastika added.
