According to Parnoto, the head of community in Setiadarma Village, Tambun Selatan, Bekasi Regency, there were two Setiadarma residents arrested by Densus.

The first arrest of a suspected terrorist about 40 years old was arrested in a rented house at RT04 RW02 Kampung Setiajaya, Dusun 1, Setiadarma Village, Tambun Selatan, Bekasi Regency. Second arrest in Hamrun 3, RT04 RW02 Kampung Darmajaya, Setiadarma Village, Tambun Selatan. “The suspect's second lease is only about 30 meters away,” Parnoto said.

Parnoto said that before the arrest, he was approached by local Binmaspol members who were then taken to the suspected terrorist's rental home. At that time Parnoto was not informed of Densus's intent and purpose to the unexpected lease.

“I went to Binmaspol, he said 'let's have an arrest', not long after we went straight away, well he said the fathers who were there were from Densus, but did not give any information about who was arrested and related to what case,” he said.

Upon arriving at the location, Pranoto was asked to knock on the door of the perpetrator's suspected rental. When the door was opened, Densus immediately arrested the suspected terrorist without a fight.

“I knocked on the door, after the door was opened, Densus called a name, and then he was immediately arrested, the name he called was unclear,” he said. The suspect didn't resist when apprehended.

In addition to Pranoto, another head of cimmunity in Kampung Darmajaya, Abdul Basit Bastian also conveyed the arrest process against his citizens living in the rented house RT04 RW02 Kampung Darmajaya, Dusun 3, Desa Setiadarma, Tambun Selatan at the same time.

Abdul Basit said that in this lease, a man of about 30 years old was arrested Densus 88. “One person was arrested in a rented house, when arrested, there was a child with his wife, but only her husband was taken,” Abdul Basit Bastian said.

So far, Basit claims not to know the name of the suspected terrorist arrested by Densus's team. But, he said, when he was about to be arrested, he heard officers mention the alleged perpetrator's name.

“So I knocked on the rental door, after the door was opened, there was a question 'you are Muklas huh? ' He went on to be arrested blindfolded, that's what I know, who made the arrest in free clothes,” he said.

Basit explained, Densus's team also secured 13 items to serve as evidence. All the evidence that was secured was mostly in the form of books. “The books he brought, his instruction manual or how I don't understand it, there were 13 items brought, mostly books,” he said.
