A 23-year-old New Zealand man, Sean Headifen, died on Sunday, April 12, 2009, after being brutalized by 6 men at the Bounty Discothèque in Kuta.

The man died from head injuries in the early morning hours of Sunday after being set upon by staff of the discothèque after reportedly throwing a bottle at a staff member. The attack that followed took place both inside the popular night spot and on the outside premises. Hedifen's female companion, also from New Zealand, suffered hand injuries in the incident.

Following the attack, the couple somehow managed to make it back to their Kuta hotel where Headifen drifted into unconsciousness and was dead when an ambulance arrived at the hotel later in the morning.

Preliminary results of an autopsy performed in Bali show the man suffered numerous wounds to his body and face, including a blow to his head with a bottle that drove part of his skull into his brain.

Six Men Questioned

Bali police questioned six men in connection with the attack, all believed to be employees of Bounty. One of the attackers, Andreas Seran, employed as a security guard at the entertainment venue, is also professional boxer who has trained both in Bali and Perth.

Numerous witnesses, including the victim's companion, saw the fatal attack. Police also reviewed footage from CCTV cameras in operation at Bounty when the fight occurred.

Following an initial review of the case, police have charged 3 employees of Bounty in the felonious assault that resulted in the man's death: Doni a guard at the venue; Nengah Suastika a bartender; and Andreas Seran.
