Police investigate Banyumas attack

BINTANGNEWS.com – The Central Java Police are investigating an attack committed by a young man wearing Islamic State attributes on three members of the Banyumas Police on Tuesday morning.
A motive for the attack and possible terror network connections are two key concerns of police investigations, a top officer has said.
“It is suspected that the perpetrator did not carry any identity on purpose. Neither a resident ID nor a driver’s license were found on his person. As the result, we could not immediately obtain his identity,” said Central Java Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Djarod Padakova on Tuesday.
“We immediately took his fingerprints and matched them with data recorded at the Banyumas Police station. It was later discovered he is MID [Muhammad Ibnu Dar], 21, a Purbalingga resident," he added.
It was reported earlier that Ibnu is a resident of Karangaren village in Kutasari district, Purbalingga. He reportedly arrived in the front yard of the Banyumas Police headquarters at around 10:10 a.m. local time. Riding a Honda Beat, Ibnu struck Banyumas Police member, Adj. First Insp. Ata Suparta, head on.
Witnessing the incident, Second Brig. Irfan and Chief Brig. Karsono attempted to come to the aid of their colleague before the perpetrator withdrew a short machete from inside his shirt, attacking Irfan and Karsono, and injuring both their hands and backs.
Assisted by around 10 officers, the three police personnel managed to subdue and arrest the attacker. “We are investigating the case. The perpetrator has been taken into custody and is being questioned,” said Djarod.***
