Footage of an alleged robbery at a gas station in Denpasar circulated widely since yesterday, showing an armed culprit dressed in a green jacket associated with Indonesia’s app-based motorcycle taxis (locally known as ojol), with police now reportedly carrying out an investigation.

A clip from the CCTV recording has gone viral on platforms like Instagram, showing the culprit driving into a quiet gas station and pointing his gun at a group of three women, who has been identified as staff at the facility. As the women fled the scene, the culprit grabbed a purse that was placed nearby before driving off to escape.
