That morning Taotomo, who was a native from Nias, cut grass at the compound of the Assistant Resident in the European quarter of the city, together with other convicts. After work, while on his way back to prison, he rested in Matingan and asked his accompanying mandor for some tobacco. When he was about to be handed the tobacco Taotomo grabbed the mandor's kris, struck him down, and then stabbed to death two villagers nearby.
Afterwards he attacked a 14-year-old Madurese boy who was flying a kite, an 8-year-old child, a woman carrying a baby, four other women, and a man. The boy and an elderly woman later succumbed to their wounds. Taotomo was eventually arrested and brought back to jail, but during the night of May 7 he hanged himself in his prison cell with his sarong.
