Man killed in house robbery
The Jakarta Post
A suspected burglar was reportedly killed by the owner of a house in the Indonesian Air Force housing complex in Waringin Permai, Cipinang Melayu, East Jakarta, on Monday.
The house owner, Deni, arrived home at 5:30 a.m. to find someone wearing a balaclava had broken into and ransacked his house.
Caught red-handed, the suspect grabbed a sharp weapon that was used as a wall decoration and attacked Deni.
“Deni is a karate master. He was once a coach of Merpati Putih [martial art],” said Kampung Makassar Police chief Comr. Nurdin as quoted by kompas.com on Tuesday.
Nurdin explained that a scuffle ensued and despite fighting barehanded, Deni managed to seize the weapon and counterattack the suspect.
"The suspect attacked first. However, Deni’s martial art skills and large size enabled him to prevail and [the suspect] was killed,” said Nurdin.
Deni immediately called his neighbors and told them about the incident. Deni sustained palm injuries from the sharp weapon.
The police have taken the suspect’s body to the National Police Hospital in Kramat Jati, East Jakarta. He had no identification on him. (agn)
