Tourist Injured by M-Bargo Employee in Kuta, Bali

(9/6/2010)

Beritabali.com reports that the M-Bargo Discotheque was the scene of an attack on a 26 year-old customer, Australian Christopher Mark Kelso, by several of the bar's employees.

The attack took place on Tuesday, August 31, 2010, at 2:30 am when Kelso in the company of a female companion visited the busy local nightspot. During the ensuing drinking session the Australian reportedly refused to accept drinks delivered to the table while he was absent from the table, using the rest room.

According to a police investigator, "the victim refused the drinks while stroking the waiter's head." While it's unclear if the waiter was upset by the refusal to accept his drink order or at his head being stroked by a stranger, the waiter retaliated by hitting the Australian. Within moments other employees of the bar joined the fracas, hitting Kelso repeatedly.

A policeman called to the scene said: "The victim admits he was hit by other employee. There were 3 attackers." The man reportedly fled the scene going directly to the police to report the assault.

As a result of the attack, the man suffered a torn lip, a bruise on his left cheek, and an abrasion below his eye. His female companion took him to a local hospital for treatment.

Police continue to interview employees of the nightspot and other eyewitnesses to the incident.

The latest chapter in a growing reputation for violence in Kuta's night-life Mecca, this attack reminds that police have yet to make an arrest in the brutal murder of an employee of The Red Room Bar on July 14, 2010, which followed street violence between gangs at the Sky Garden Discotheque three days earlier.
