The attack took place at 3:00 am at the victim's villa in Banjar Cucukan in Gianyar regency where he was asleep with his wife at the time of the robbery. Police believe the robbers also poisoned the family's dog before forcing their way into the house via the window of the sleeping couple's bedroom.

Ni Wayan Sampreg, Delgo's Balinese wife of 25 years, told police that she recognized the voice of one of the robbers.

After attacking Delgo, they forced the victim to show them where valuables were kept in the house before stealing some Rp. 500 million in cash (US$55,500) and a number of valuable personal items before tying up the couple and locking them in a bathroom.

The woman managed to free herself at 6:00 am and raise the alarm with the police.
