A couple's vacation was ruined after the thugs allegedly robbed them and stole the scooter they rented before they were told to pay $ 25,000 from a rental company.
Eugene Aathar, 24, and his wife Dolly Ho, 22, were on vacation in Bali and lost their way back to Villa La Vie in Kuta on May 6th.
The couple said they were on a back road in Kuta around 2 am when two men approached them and attempted to steal the phone that Ms. Ho was using to navigate, The Straits Times reported.
Eugene Aathar, 24, and his wife Dolly Ho, 22, (pictured) were on vacation in Bali when they reported that the thugs had robbed them and stolen the scooter they had rented before being told to pay $ 25,000 from a rental company
While the two vehicles rode side by side one of the assailants would have kicked the scooter from under the pair making them both fall to the ground.
Mr. Aather suffered minor injuries while Ms. Ho reported a mild concussion and a fractured shoulder, reported Must News News.
The couple asserts that a spectator seemed to be there to help at first and asked for information on the location of their scooter.
After they told him where the scooter was, they took it and left.
The two had rented a scooter from the villa where they were staying.
While the couple recovered in the hospital, the villa would contact them and inform them that they would have to pay a tax of around 250 million rupees (AUS $ 24,965) for the stolen scooter.

They also claimed that the villa threatened to prevent him from leaving the country until the fee was paid, despite having rented the scooter for 125,000 rupees (AUS $ 12).
After a back and forth with the villa, Mr. Aathar claims he is finally satisfied after paying 12 million rupees (AUS $ 1,198) for the stolen scooter.
The couple was able to leave Bali unhindered and return home to Singapore before Ms. Ho was admitted to the National University Hospital (NUH).
She was discharged on Monday and is recovering well.
