(2/23/2013)

DenPost reports that a South Koran national, Kim Seong Cheol (42), was attacked on the evening of Monday, February 18, 2013, outside a sushi restaurant on Jalan Darmawangsa in South Kuta, Bali.

A man wielding a knife savagely attacked Cheol. As the wounded Korean sought refuge inside the restaurant, his attacker made off with the Korean’s car.

An employee of the restaurant, Fredy Firdausi (24), gave chase to the attacker now driving the stolen vehicle, pursuing a man later identified by police as Alexander Sakan (29).

The chase continued to Tanjung Benoa, the southernmost area of Bali, where local villagers, alerted by Firdausi, mobbed Sakan. Undeterred, Sakan then unsuccessfully tried to make good his escape on a local speedboat.

Such was the severity of the beating meted out by local residents that the blade-wielding attacker required hospitalization in the intensive care of Bali’s Sanglah Hospital.

The motive for the attack remains unclear as does whether the two men knew each other.

Sakan, who hails from Kupang, attacked the Korean at 12:30 am in what was reported as a frenzied assault on Kim while sitting at the wheel of his car in front of the restaurant. The attacked inflicted a cut on the Korean’s left arm requiring 25 stitches and a 3 cm cut on the man’s neck. The wounds were treated at a local hospital on an outpatient basis.

Police are waiting for the assailant’s condition to improve sufficiently to allow questioning.
