A 12 year old boy from Perth, who is unable to be named due to legal reasons, has been sexually assaulted whilst receiving a massage in Kuta, Bali.

The young boy was visiting the Bali parlour with his mum and grandmother, who were in separate rooms having massages, when his 47 year old male masseuse asked him to remove his pants so as to not get oil stains on them. Once the 12 year old had taken off his pants the masseuse, who has been named as Abdurahman, also took his pants off and “the victim felt something strange” and ran out to find his mother.

After listening to her son, the mother went directly to Police, told them what had happened to her son, and Abdurahman was soon arrested at the business after.

Kuta police chief Wayan Sumara has said that the boy and his family were “shocked” but are staying to help out with the investigation.

Mr Sumara held a press conference where the offender was present under Police guard. when asked by reporters, Abdurahman stated that he didn’t believe the boy would “yell and run” and that he had had previous relations with around 15 people, though they were consenting.

Abdurahman is being held at the Police station and the charges laid against him carry a maximum term of 15 years.

  • What on earth. Why would you let your son 12 have a massage anyway? Out of the same room as you. This whole story is very weird.

    • Yes that is indeed strange, would never have my 12 year old have a massage by her own and certainly not in an Asian country.
      Even my husband tells how he as an adult man had a massage once and the masseuse tried to do sexual acts !


  • Hope the 12 year old gets some counselling to help him deal with his trauma. Have to say sounds like his mother reacted fast. Stay safe everyone.


  • I’m glad he owned up, unbelievable that people would consent to this !!!
    Shocking great to know though.


  • How shocking for the boy ! Glad this man got arrested !!


  • I can’t believe it. What a sicko. Glad he got away from this disgusting human being


  • You can’t be serious! How on earth could he have thought he would get away with that!? Glad he was caught, hope he’s dealt with


  • Thank goodness this child ran to his mother and his mother acted straight away.
    This boy should be very proud of himself for running away and telling his mother the truth.


  • Disgusting!!! I’m glad that this boy ran out. Apparently people (kids?) before him, were so frightened that didn’t do anything. “Consenting”? He thinks the others were “consenting”? Grrr…


  • I do hope the man receives 15 years for what he did to the poor boy.

    • He should get a MININUM of 15 years – no parole. Solitary confinement somewhere when that sentence is completed , not where he can molest others of any age. The laws in many countries are not severe enough.


  • What an appalling “explanation” for his actions.


  • This is truely shocking. Thank goodness the boy ran out but it’s still traumatising. Hope the offender gets the maximum penalty.


  • I’m so glad this young boy took the right action and ran and told his mum what had happened.
