Scorpio Offline
While staying at Ruby's on the beach near Aqua Dive, My very beautiful wife and I were awaken by someone saying my name through our window (on the 3rd floor) at 4:15 am. The man was mispronouncing my name and was becoming very angry that I did not respond. We had been diving the day prior Nov. 8th 2007 at Aqua dive off the beach near BC's bar. After 20 minutes, the keeper came up and told the guy to leave. He was supposed to be off shift @4:00 am, lucky for us, he must have stayed around a little longer and heard the guy. (Obviously the guy knew the keepers schedule) When Ruby's was approached by us, obviously concerned due to the anger and visciousness this guy was yelling in the window, the keeper said he had to run off someone from the dive shop but did not know him by name. This guy was absolutely up to no good and will cause someone harm at some point. The police were contacted (with no results) and Aqua Dive management was contacted to inform of the situation with one of their employees. No return call was received from the manager as he promised. So, obviously this guy is still out either waiting to victimize another, or continuing to. He obviously believes he can get away with this type of action, because nothing happened to address the issue. Ever thought what a person would be doing yelling your name in your window very angrily, in a place where you know no one, at 4:15 am? The troubling thing is, the guy is known and nothing happened. What if i had opened the door to this guy? He was definitely out to do harm? What do we do from here? We love the island but this has jaded us. I would love some input from anyone with insight.

Very strange! You did the right thing by not opening your door or responding. Only thing I can think of is staying at a hotel/resort with a proper security officer. Most of the budget places do not. Glad it turned out ok.

Is it relevant who this person worked for?

It is relevant if that's the reason the guy knew their names, where they stayed, and their room number. Vouchers given to dive shops and tour companies usually have this information on them, so for that reason, it is relevant.

Ruby's does have a security guard ("the keeper".) And of course it matters where the guy works because it will help eventually figure out who he is. Sounds quite strange and probably a little more to the story than we have been told. The police can't really do much when you don't know who the guy is, you think you might know where he works, and he didn't actually do anything except call your name at 4am. If that is all it takes to get people off the street 25% of the party crowd in San Pedro would be locked up every saturday night!

Why on earth would my post have been deleted? All I said was that "victimized" seemed too strong a word and "seriously annoyed" more in keeping with what actually happened.

And then, in keeping with what Amanda said about there probably being more to the story, I asked if they'd had any earlier social interaction with the person yelling outside their window.

I wonder whether Scorpio has approached AquaDives to help resolve the issue?

Taken from the original post "The police were contacted (with no results) and Aqua Dive management was contacted to inform of the situation with one of their employees. No return call was received from the manager as he promised."
