Kim Seong-cheol, 42, was returning to his car parked on Jalan Darmawangsa in South Kuta when a man riding a motorcycle brandished a sword and attacked him. The victim fought back but was injured when the would-be thief slashed Kim’s left arm with the sword.

The attacker, identified as Alexander Sakan, 29, from Kupang, then fled the scene in Kim’s car.

Kim’s shouts for help were heard by people near to the crime scene and a group of vigilantes pursued Alexander on motorcycles and on foot.

Alexander abandoned the car after it crashed into a government office building, running to the beach in an attempt to flee on a speed boat.

The crowd managed to apprehend him after the boat’s engine failed to start. The mob began attacking Alexander before police arrived to rescue him.
