Man Caught About to Rape Tourist at Kuta Beach: Police

KUTA BEACH

A Balinese man pulled a 20-year-old Australian woman off her motorbike as she was passing Kuta Beach in the early hours of Monday morning and attempted to rape her, police said.

The woman was dragged to the beach and was about to be raped when a beach security officer spotted the act and seized the man, 24, Kuta Police chief Wimboko told The Bali Times.

The alleged incident occurred around 3.30am, he said, adding that the suspect was an ojek (motorcycle taxi) driver.

“She was riding a motorcycle when the man pulled her bag and hand and she fell to the ground and was dragged to the beach.

“The rapist was ready [to rape her], and that’s when the security guard caught him and handed him to the police in Kuta,” he said.

Wimboko said the woman was being treated for injuries at Sanglah Hospital in Denpasar.

A similar incident of alleged rape of a 30-year-old Australian woman by a local man was reported to Kuta Police last month.

    Om Swastiastut,

    I am not surprised by this incident.
    When will the media wake up and report the goings on in Legian/Kuta/Jalan Dhyana Pura after 11 p.m. instead of wasting airtime and column space on documentary films etc.

    And when will the powers that be realize that Bali is NOT FOR SALE AT ANY COST.

    Om Shanti Shanti Shanti Om

    A sad occurrence but Bali is not alone in these problems. Mark Ulyseas (sic) is correct about the selling of Bali, but it is inevitable. Mark knows about these things through experience, I suggest.
