A 26-year-old college student with the initials YAL from Jakarta was rescued after getting mugged on a public street in Nusa Dua.
The Head of the South Kuta Criminal Investigation Bureau, Iptu AA Gede Suantara, confirmed that the victim was rescued from a bush area in Kampial, Nusa Dua after getting mugged and assaulted, causing her to lose consciousness on Saturday morning (19/3).
YAL was spotted by a passerby who was on her way home. A video recorded by the passerby went viral on social media, as the body of the victim was spotted lying face down on the grass on Saturday at 4:00 am.
The passerby thought that the victim was already dead since she was not moving. “She was spotted by a woman who thought she had already passed away,” Iptu Suantara said on Monday (21/3).
After being rescued by the police, the victim explained that the incident occurred when she was walking alone near her residence in Mutiara Kampial Housing Complex that evening. Unidentified people suddenly assaulted her from behind.
They stole her phone after she lost consciousness and fled. Suantara admitted that the investigation has been pretty difficult due to the lack of witnesses and CCTV cameras in the area.
“We haven’t completely started our investigation as the victim was still unstable and in shock when we found her,” Iptu Suantara concluded.
