The Kuta Police have arrested US national Garyn Cancio, 25, for allegedly attacking a security guard at a nightclub on the resort island of Bali on Sunday.
The alleged attack took place at the Sky Garden Bar on Jl. Legian in Kuta, one of Bali’s most popular tourist areas.
“He was drunk and blocking the way for the bar’s staff. A security officer asked him to move. Maybe he was offended. The American then attacked him,” Kuta Police chief Comr. Wayan Sumara said on Tuesday.
The security officer, identified as I Putu Gede Abdi Negara, suffered injuries to his ear and neck after being struck with a glass by Cancio.
The police said they would charge Cancio with assault and battery as stipulated under Article 351 of the Criminal Code. The charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison. (ary)
