Australian woman taken to Bali crime scene

Sara Connor has been taken to Kuta Beach to re-enact what happened the night a local policeman died.

Australian woman Sara Connor has been taken to Kuta Beach to re-enact what happened the night the bloodied body of a local policeman was found.

After spending her first night in custody in Bali, Ms Connor – along with British man David James Taylor – was taken to Kuta Beach at dawn where they were asked to carry out a re-enactment.

“(We) wanted to find out the suspects’ position during the incident and the suspects admitted that they were there,” Denpasar District Police Chief Hadi Purnomo said on Saturday.

They were also taken to the nearby Kubu Kau Beach Inn – the hotel where Mr Taylor was staying before heading to Trijata Hospital in Denpasar.

Here Ms Connor was met with a small group of local media. She covered her face with a sarong and didn’t make any comment.

Mr Purnomo said police wanted Ms Connor to undergo an examination of wounds on her leg, which she has allegedly told authorities happened on the night the policeman died.

Ms Connor and Mr Taylor were arrested near the Australian Consulate-General in Denpasar on Friday after police put out an immigration alert in a bid to stop the pair from leaving the island.

Police said they were wanted for questioning over the death of Wayan Sudarsa, whose body was discovered at around 3.30am local time (5.30am AEST) on Wednesday lying on a beach in Kuta by local hotel security staff.

His face was covered in sand, he had a wound to his forehead and leg, and his shirt was unbuttoned and bloodied.

The smashed remains of a beer bottle were found near his head.

Bali Provincial Police Chief Sugeng Prayitno told reporters after their arrest that Ms Connor had admitted to being “drunk” on the night of the alleged attack and couldn’t remember all the events that night.

He said Ms Connor had told police she was on Kuta beach with Mr Taylor where the two were intimate.

During that time, she said she lost her purse and wounded her arm and leg.

Mr Purnomo said on Saturday they wanted the hospital to discover the age of Ms Connor’s wounds.
