A tourist driver threatened a cabin crew member while offering his services at the Bali Ngurah Rai Airport area on Friday morning (22/4).
The Head of Criminal Investigation Bureau, Iptu Kadek Supendodi, confirmed that a suspect, I Wayan S (a.k.a. Wayan Ompong) from Rendang, Karangasem, threatened a cabin crew member with the initials SF (age 27).
The victim came to the airport with his friend to receive the Covid-19 vaccine booster on Friday at 8:00 am. After doing so, both of them walked towards the motorbike parking area so that they could go home.
But as they walked past the parking area of the domestic terminal, Wayan approached them. He attempted to offer his services to them, but the victims rejected him.
Wayan kept approaching the victims, forcing them to accept his offer. After getting rejected twice, Wayan got mad and threatened to assault the victims with a sharp object. Shortly after the victims managed to leave the airport, one of the victims filed a report to the airport authority through an email, while the other one posted a complaint on his Twitter account.
After receiving the report, the airport authorities immediately detained the suspect and began an investigation. During the mediation between both parties, the victim agreed to end the case. He refused to pursue a lawsuit against the suspect as Wayan apologized and promised to stop his aggressive behavior.
“The victim has forgiven the suspect and won’t continue with his lawsuit,” Iptu Supendodi said.
