Police in South Jakarta said on Sunday that a man suspected of attacking a parking attendant at  Gandaria City shopping mall was not member of the Indonesian Military (TNI).

Chief of Kebayoran Lama precinct Comr. Kurniawan Ismail said the individual, identified as Anwari, was in fact the spouse of a doctor who worked at the Gatot Subroto Army Hospital.

"The official TNI car is used by his wife and since she is employed by the Army hospital, he can use the car as well," Kurniawan said as quoted by kompas.com.

Kurniawan also said Anwari had been named a suspect for allegedly assaulting the parking attendant.

"We already detained him at the precinct. We're still digging deeper," he said.

As earlier reported on Saturday, a man thought to be member of the TNI allegedly attacked a parking attendant, identified as Zuansyah, 21, and fired a gun into the air of the basement parking lot of the mall in South Jakarta on Friday evening, after reportedly refusing to pay his parking fee.

While exiting the basement, the parking attendant reportedly asked him to pay Rp 20,000 (US$1.48), but the man allegedly complained.

After reportedly arguing with Zuansyah, the man finally paid the parking fee and left the basement.

A few moments later, however, he returned to the basement with another man.
