The businessman that pointed a gun at a waiter in a Cork & Screw restaurant in Plaza Indonesia has been named a suspect by the police and is facing at least five years in jail.

Iswahyudi Ashari, identified as the president director of Cipta Permata Tatasari, was arrested on Friday evening, following his pointing of a gun at the waiter after an argument over a bill on April 19.

Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Rikwanto said the police found two guns,150 metal projectiles, some rubber bullets, among other items, while raiding Iswahyudi’s residence in Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta, and arresting him.

“We’ve raided and seized a number of items, including 150 metal bullets, rubber bullets, some books on metal and rubber bullet ownerships, and several gun ownership cards,” Rikwanto said in Jakarta on Saturday.

“We’re going to analyze the [type of] gun he used [on April 19],” he added.
Rikwanto said that while permits for the firearm were still in effect, the one for the rubber bullet gun had expired.

He added that Iswahyudi could be sentenced to five years in jail if he was proven guilty of threatening the waiter with a gun and or securing the weapons illegally.
