(5/20/2014)

A purse-snatcher operating along Jalan Teuku Umar Barat  in Denpasar in the early hours of Saturday, May 17, 2014, has caused the death of a young South Korean woman and serious injuries to another girl from Germany.

The latest attack adds to a pattern of concerning criminal attacks, many directed at women, occurring in Bali’s main tourist areas.

Three young women riding on two motorbikes were returning from an evening out in Seminyak at 2:00 am on Saturday morning when a man, who apparently had been following the women since they passed the Kerobokan prison, came along side and grabbed the bag of the pillion passenger, Kim Eun Sol (19). In the ensuing struggle over the hand bag, the South Korean fell off the back of the motorbike driven by her friend Amy Fitria Sidharta (18) of Germany. The South Korean tumbled into the oncoming lane of traffic where another motorcycle driven by Gede Bagia (27) struck the woman in head, killing her instantly.

Sidharta also fell from her bike and suffered bruises and contusion, as did the driver of the oncoming motorcycle - Gede Bagia

The second motorcycle carrying a third girl and friend of Kim and Sidharta went on for some distance before she noticed the two girls were no longer following. Only when the third girl returned in search of her two friends she discovered the grisly crime scene.

According to the State News Agency Antara, Kim Eun Sol had recently graduated from Taman Mahatma Gandhi High School in Denpasar and was planning to continue her studies in Bali

Police continue to investigate the fatality.
