Crime in city Denpasar

Anonym 2 years ago
There is some crime, mostly perpetrated by workers from other islands (Java, Timor, etc.). Sometimes, single travelers can be thrown of motorcycles at night and robbed.
Unsuccessful attempts at rape have been know to have been made.
Recently, some guy brought home a one-night-stand from a disco, and found his 3-year-old son missing in the morning. Thankfully, the kid was found in a couple of days, but I am horrified to imagine something like that even for a moment, being a father myself.
Locals are very nice towards tourists and are, thus, actively against the crimes committed by those from other islands.
Being minimally vigilant and not letting the exotic locality get to your head should be enough to stay safe.
