The Presidential Security Detail (Paspampres) caught a naked man attempting to enter the Presidential Palace in Central Jakarta on Monday morning.
The man approached the palace via the Jl. Medan Merdeka Utara entrance, which was tightly guarded by Paspampres and military police personnel, who immediately apprehended him.
In a video uploaded on Facebook by a netizen with an account named Novita Sitinjak, it can be seen that the naked man attempted to escape from the three Paspampres members who caught him. According to the video uploader as quoted by tribunnews.com, the incident occurred at 7:35 a.m. Monday.
Gambir Police chief Ida Ketut said the police had received a report on the incident. It is suspected that the man was mentally disabled.
“This is because he kept shouting as he attempted to enter the palace. He said: ‘I want to get married at the palace’,” said Ida as quoted by kompas.com in Jakarta on Monday.
The identity of the man remains unknown. The case has been handed over to the Jakarta Police. (win/ebf)
