Bali authorities have detained a Ukrainian man after he caused damage to a villa in Ubud, Gianyar.
The Head of the Gianyar Civil Service, Officer Made Watha, confirmed that a 38-year-old man named Pablo from Ukraine had been detained for damaging a villa in Jalan Suweta, Ubud Gianyar on Tuesday (28/12).
“We received a report that Pablo had damaged glass screens and flower pots in his villa,” Watha said on Tuesday.
The incident occurred after Pablo lost his temper, causing him to destroy items in the villa. This frightened the other guests and the villa owner.
The villa owner decided to report the incident to local authorities. After a few minutes, a civil service officer and a military officer arrived and attempted to detain the Ukrainian man.
The man tried to refuse the arrest by locking his villa from the inside, so the authorities had to climb up the wall to reach him. Once they secured the man, they had him transported to a mental hospital in Bangli to get a proper diagnosis.
“Pablo is allegedly depressed due to his financial situation, which made him unable to go back home. So, we decided to communicate this problem with his Consulate for further handling,” Watha concluded.
