In December 1837 a Buginese wounded more than twenty people, several of them fatally, in Semarang, Dutch East Indies. With a kris in his hand the man left an opium den in the Chinese quarter of the city and dashed along the street and through the crowded bazaar, attacking people at random. When he made his way along Bodjong street and approached a sentry box of the police he was attacked by several prajurits (native soldiers), who wounded him with their lances and then shot him dead.[1][2][3][4]
