As reported on [See: Robbery at Ubud Hotel Angers Bali's Chief of Police], two Korean honeymooners were robbed and brutally assaulted shortly after checking in at an Ubud area hotel on December 26, 2006.

Shocked and dismayed at the brutality of the attack which caused cuts and lacerations to the husband and left the wife hospitalized in Bali's General Hospital, various elements of the community responded by calling on the couple to express their apologies for the rare assault, with hospitalization and repatriation costs guaranteed by Bali's Governor and Gianyar's Regent.

Police Make an Arrest

The Indonesia-language Bali Post reports that police have made an arrest in the case, just 10 days after the incident.

Responding in part to a 30-day deadline given by Bali's police chief to solve the case, police in the neighboring island of Lombok arrested a 25 year-old man on Friday, January 5, 2007, in a small village at the center of the island.

The young man, Dodi Prayoga, has reportedly admitted to police that he attacked 33 year-old Jim Yung Ok with a local sword at The Ubud Village Hotel.

Based on information obtained during the ongoing interrogation of Prayoga, police are now searching for two accomplices in Lombok believed to have played a role in the robbery and assault.

The couple injured in the incident flew home to Korea on Thursday, January 4, 2007.
