North Kuta Police Arrest Australian for Threatening Local


The North Kuta Police Department, Bali, arrested an Australian citizen who had allegedly threatened a villa’s staff member on Tuesday night (July 1).

“We held a rummage at ZIva and Boutique Villa in Kerobokan, Kuta, for Frofus Igor, an Australian tourist,” said Chief of North Kuta Police Adjunct Commissioner Ronny Riantoko in Kuta on Wednesday.

The issue started when Igor, who had booked the villa from June 26 to July 3, 2014, enquired the receptionist on Monday night (June 30) about his check-out time.

A staff member explained to Igor about the villa’s regulation that the check-out time was 12 a.m. of Indonesian Central Time, but Igor asked for leaving at 9 p.m.

As the staff member was explaining further that additional charges will be applicable if a guest wants a late check-out, Igor went to his room and brought back a gun, and then threatened the staff.

Besides pointing the gun at the staff, Igor also shouted that he was a Russian soldier and his commander was staying at a villa nearby in Pangkung Sari Street, in North Kuta area.

The staff member, who was threatened, had reported to his boss and then called the North Kuta Police. The police are still questioning Igor at the North Kuta Police Office.
