A group of app-based ojek (motorcycle taxi) drivers attacked a security post at the Mutiara Taman Palem residential complex in Cengkareng, West Jakarta, on Wednesday evening, after their fellow driver had been beaten by a security officer.
Cengkareng Police chief Comr. Agung Budi Laksono said the ojek driver, Rosi Suhendi, 33, had been beaten in an altercation with the security officer after refusing to leave his ID card while delivering food to a customer in the housing complex.
“[Rosi] finally agreed to leave his ID, but after delivering the food the quarrel continued. [The security officer] punched Rosi in the face, giving him a nosebleed,” Agung said in his statement.
Rosi left the scene and called the other drivers, who later damaged the post with stones and wooden bars, until Cengkareng Police officers arrived on scene and dispersed the crowd.
“We are now questioning Rosi, the security officer and other witnesses,” Agung said.
