A husband and a wife on a motorcycle allegedly attacked the Indramayu Police in West Java on Sunday at around 3 a.m., forcing their way into the station.

"The two unknown people were speeding [on a motorcycle] to enter the headquarters as they were going after a uniformed officer," National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Muhammad Iqbal said, kompas.com reported. 

On-duty police immediately shot at the two suspects, who turned around and headed for the exit gate after throwing a pressure cooker at the officers. Police shot at them, but they managed to flee from the scene. No police officer was injured in the incident.

The West Java Police bomb squad examined what appeared to be a pressure cooker bomb. There was no explosion at the scene.

Police chased the fleeing suspects and eventually arrested them, Indramayu Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Arif Fajarudin was quoted as saying by Antara news agency on Sunday.

"One of the suspects is now in critical condition from the shooting," Iqbal said, as quoted by tribunnews.com. The suspect is being treated at the Bhayangkara Hospital on Jl. Losarang Raya in Indramayu. (stu/evi)
