The Badung Police Sector remains unable to take significant steps to improve security in North Kuta and Canggu – an area now labeled by DenPost as a “Red Zone.”

The many cases of robberies and burglary of villas include three major cases involving foreign visitors or residents that remain unsolved.

Paul Douglas Gill, an Australian, was stabbed repeatedly by an intruder at Villa Chloe on Jalan Pantai Berawa, Gang Bisma on January 4, 2013. In that attack, Gill sustained stabbing wounds to his neck, shoulder, face and back.

Also unsolved is the robbery of an Australian Woman who reports she was raped and robbed at Villa Damais on Jalan Bumbak in North Kuta on April 27, 2013.

On Saturday, May 4, 2013, a Canadian Man, identified only as Peter, was robbed at knifepoint in a villa on Jalan Tegal Cupek, North Kuta.

Burglaries at villas located in North Kuta numbered 13 in March 2013, including:

  • A Columbian Numa Hontus who lost more than US$10,000 in personal belongings while staying at Villa Sunyl on Jalan Umalas.
  • Trent Nathan Tighe of Australia staying at The Padi House on Jalan Danau Batur, Gang Mangga, Tibubeneng on March 9, 2013 who reported a loss of US$10,000 in personal property.
  • Richard John Smith of the U.K. suffered US$8,000 is losses while staying at a villa on Jalan Mutiara.
  • Steffan Seaton of Sweden suffered unspecified losses in person belongings while staying at Villa Nadia on Jalan Petitenget in North Kuta.
  • Marcelo of Brazil was robbed while staying at a villa on Jalan Pura Warung in Canggu.
  • John Daniel Schroeder of the U.S.A. told police his possessions were stolen from his place of residence at the Baliku Complex on Jalan Raya Semer, Kerobokan.
  • Maxim Kim of Russia was robbed during a stay at a villa on Jalan Bumbak Dauh, North Kuta.
On Monday, May 6, 2013, a spokesman for the Bali Police, Hariadi, assured the press that the police continue to innovate in their efforts to safeguard local neighborhoods. The police have extended a special status to North Kuta and are now dedicating extra resources to reduce crime in the area.

Meanwhile, the police report that statistics maintained by their office show a definite increase in crime during the first quarter of 2013. Increases in crime have fallen into three categories: grand larceny, armed robbery and robbery using a motorcycle.

Editors Note: This story was updated on November 2013 removing the name of the Woman Villa Damai attack at the victim's reguest.
