An altercation broke out at the Feyloon Chinese Restaurant on Jalan Raya Kuta on Sunday, August 4, 2013, involving the manager of a local travel company and management and staff from the restaurant.
As reported by The Bali Post, the travel agent, Hendra Haryanto (34), told police he was attacked by the manager of the restaurant, a man called Fred from Malaysia, and several of Fred’s associates.
As the result of the attack, Haryanto suffered injuries on his lips, cheek and arms.
Initial reports suggest the fight wa linked to a misunderstanding on the amount to be paid for dinner by a group brought by Haryanto to the restaurant.
Agustiawan, an officer from the criminal division of the Kuta Police Precinct, confirmed the incident has been reported by Haryanto and a criminal investigation was currently underway.
Hendra told police he was attacked by at least ten men. He only knew three of his assailants, namely the manager of the Feyloon Restaurant Fred, the owner of the restaurant Joe, and an employee of the establishment from Kupang.
Hendra said he was summoned to the location of the attack to settle a problem concerning a booking for a group at the restaurant. His guests had booked a dinner at Feyloon Restaurant costing Rp. 150,000 per person (US$15). After he made the booking, Hendra claims the restaurant increased the cost to Rp. 190,000 (US$19) precipitating the disagreement.
Upon leaving the restaurant, Hendra claims he was pursued to his parking space across the street from the restaurant where Fred commenced pushing him. Shortly thereafter, the owner of the restaurant and one of his employees joined in the attack. When the travel agent ran to a nearby gas station to evade his attackers, they reportedly pursue him, pummeling him along the way.
Hendra is asking the police to continue to investigate the attack.
