Two men who have been identified as Dimas Wahyu and Putu Sudiarta (a.k.a Leong) have been shot by police officers for resisting arrest after breaking into a minimarket during the emergency partial lockdown.
The Head of the Denpasar Police Department, Kombes Pol Jansen Avitus Panjaitan confirmed that the suspects were shot in their leg for attempting to resist arrest on Thursday afternoon (8/7). “The officers were forced to shoot both suspects in the leg in order to stop them from resisting arrest on Thursday afternoon around 3:00pm.” Kombes Pol Jansen said on Friday (9/7).
The police investigation began when management from one of the Circle K minimarkets that is located on Jalan Gatot Subroto Timur was broken into on Thursday during the early morning (8/7). After collecting information from the scene, both suspects were arrested on the same day from Jalan Pulau Saelus, Denpasar along with evidence such as 29 packages of cigarettes, 3 bottles of perfume, a crowbar and a motorbike.
During their operation, the suspect came to the scene with a motorbike and used the crowbar to break the door of the minimarket before finally leaving with some stolen goods. During the interrogation, the suspects admitted that the operation was initiated by Dimas. “Both of them have been detained and would potentially face 7 years of imprisonment to be held responsible for what they have done.” Kombes Pol Jansen concluded.
