Police in Bali have taken into custody 7 people and a Rottweiler dog in connection with a brutal attack on two local men. According to and Radar Bali, among the seven held by police is an American Citizen.

The events leading to the group's apprehension unfolded shortly after midnight on Monday, July 16, 2012 when an Italian, Luca Cavassa, riding a motorcycle on his way home from the Potato Head Restaurant, was involved in a collision with another motorcycle driven by two Balinese men - I Made Sudanta and Made Juni Permata.

The men resolved the matter of damages resulting from the accident at the scene, with Luca Cavassa paying a sum of money to Sudanta.

Continuing his journey, Cavasa soon met two friends, an American Jimie Roberts and an Australian-born Indonesian citizen Kimo Rusna. Luca told the tale of his accident to his two friends. “Kimo Rusna could not accept the fact that Luca had paid compensation to the other driver,” according to the police spokesman Benny Arianto, speaking to the press at the Badung Police Headquarters on Tuesday, July 17, 2013.

Jimie and Kimo invited Luca to visit the scene of the accident where they met I Made Sudanta and his friend Made Juni Permata (Reported as Putra by Radar Bali). Kimo demanded that the US$100 and Rp. 100,000 (US$10.75) given to Sudanta as compensation for the accident be returned to Luca.

According to Arianto, Kimo became emotional and struck Sudanta while Jimmy called five friends gathered at a nearby Circle K Convenience Store.

When Jimmy and his five friends arrived, they reportedly brutally attacked Sudanta. One of Kimo’s friends, Putu Wisma Saputra also known by the alias “Killer” brought a pet Rotweiller to the scene, with the animal joining in the attack, Arianto said, “the Rotweiller dog bit the hands of the victim.” Also listed as accomplices in the attack are Made Leo Kurniawan, Gede Angga Rismawan, Si Putu Wisnu Wisma and Muhammad Rizal.

After the attack, Sudanto reported the incident to the police who quickly placed the 7 men and the dog under arrest, confining them at the Badung Police station.

Police are saying the seven men may be charged under the criminal law dealing with gang attacks, subject to a possible five year prison sentence.

Police are initially listing the Italian, Luca Cavassa, as a witness in the crime and not as a suspect.
