Following the video going viral,  Kota Semarang Police and Civil Service (Satpol PP) Chief Fajar Purwoto said that the perpetrator has since been detained. Furthermore, Purwoto further revealed that the beggar has actually been detained twice before by the local police.

It is understood that the beggar is part of a syndicate that is operating in other areas of Kota Semarang. Furthermore, Purwoto also revealed that evaluation by the police revealed that the beggar did not suffer from any mental illness but has the tendency to be aggressive when people refused his request for money. Previously, the man was also reported to have spat at those who refused to give him alms.
