DENPASAR ~ A Denpasar homeowner attacked a man after catching him urinating in front of his house and turned himself in to police on Monday, police said.
Denpasar Police spokesman Ketut Suwetra said I Nyoman Gede Suprapta alias Komang Oce, 39, confronted Theo Birahi, 34, when he found him urinating outside his house on Jl. Nusa Baru, Denpasar.
Suprapta said when he confronted Birahi and pointed out the family temple close to where he was urinating, he and his friends became angry and threw bottles at him.
He said he then called his brother, who tried to stop the confrontation, but claimed he had no choice but to arm himself with a sickle to scare off the three men who continued to throw missiles and follow him into his house.
