Three Mexicans arrested in Bali for committing a robbery and injuring a Turkish tourist

BALI, INDONESIA: Indonesian authorities announced the arrest of three Mexican nationals in connection with an alleged robbery on Bali that resulted in severe injuries to a Turkish tourist.

The arrests took place on Saturday at a villa in Ungasan village, Badung district, where the Mexicans had been staying as tourists since December 7, according to Bali police spokesperson Jansen Avitus Panjaitan.

The incident unfolded last week when the three arrested individuals, along with a fourth Mexican accomplice, forcibly entered a villa near the popular tourist area of Kuta.

The perpetrators, armed with three guns, confronted a security guard, compelling him to surrender. Subsequently, they fired bullets at guests who fled the villa, causing injuries.

During the robbery, the assailants stole approximately $5,900 in US dollars and Indonesian currency. A 39-year-old Turkish man sustained gunshot wounds to his stomach, left hand, and left back chest.

The suspects meticulously planned the robbery, employing firearms and conducting surveillance on the targeted villa, as revealed by police investigations. Surveillance footage and eyewitness testimonies enabled authorities to identify and locate the four Mexican individuals involved.

One suspect remains at large, while the three arrested individuals were presented at a news conference wearing handcuffs and orange vests.
