Tourists Warned About Increasing Crime In Popular Bali Resort

Tourists heading to Bali’s popular beach resort of Kuta are urged to keep their wits about them as there has been a rise in crime in the area.

Reports of theft and muggings have increased in the last two weeks. 

Police have reported that an Indian tourist was mugged on Jalan Tegal Wangi in Kuta on Thursday evening.

The woman, who was walking to her hotel with her husband around 9.30 pm, is reported to have been grabbed by two men who were riding a motorbike towards them. 

Reports suggest that the two men stopped the motorcycle suddenly as one launched himself at her and forcibly pulled the gold necklace from her neck.

The two men immediately jumped back on the motorcycle and rode away. However, as they accelerated away, the driver lost control of the N-Max, and the two men were thrown from the vehicle.
