(12/18/2011)

Following the shooting of a security guard at the [Santa Fe Café on December 5, 2011] , violence has once again occurred on the streets of Kuta.

In the early hours of Friday, December 16, 2011, two Australian men, identified as Christopher (26) and Jake Benjamin Whitehead, visited the Bounty Discothèque in the company of two Balinese men, Ketut Sentanu and Wayan Mu.

Following their visit to the nightspot, the scene of numerous violent attacks in the past, the four men were rushed to the BIMC Hospital for treatment of stab wounds. Christopher was later removed to the intensive care section of Bali’s Sanglah General Hospital in Denpasar.

The Bali Post reports that police suspect the assailant in the attack was a local unlicensed guide who frequents the Bounty Discothèque.

The attacked reportedly occurred at 2:00 a.m. on Friday when the four men visited the nightspot. The suspected assailant, traveling together with a foreigner was also visiting the Bounty.

The foreigner accompanying the guide is believed to have spilt the drink of Christopher. When Christopher demanded a replacement drink a dispute ensued in which the guide stabbed Christopher in the stomach with a knife.

When Jake Benjamin tried to come to the aid of his fallen comrade, he was also stabbed by the Indonesian guide in the chest before a similar armed attacked was launched on Sentanu and Wu.

After all four men had been wounded, the guide and his foreign companion escaped from the scene via the small alleyways surrounding the nightspot.

The Jakarta Globe subsequently reported on Sunday, December 18, 2011, that an Australian and an Indonesian acquaintance have been charged with assault in the stabbing. The Australian and the Indonesian, yet unnamed by the police, were apprehended, respectively, at a Home-Stay in Kuta and a private residence in Bali.

The Jakarta Globe also reports that police are examining if grounds exists to charge the management The Bounty with negligence in allowing patrons with weapons in their possession onto their premises.

In April 2009, a 22-year-old New Zealand tourist, Sean Keith William, died after be was beaten to death by two employees of the Bounty.  The three assailants in that case were eventually found guilty only of a physical assault, absolved by the courst of the resulting death of the New Zealander. They were released after serving 6 months in custody.
