I still don't quite get it. Why did they go half naked into the fountain to take a picture there? Since he thinks she set him up for the phone steal they don't seem to know each other well, so why would she strip nearly naked and go into a public fountain? I just don't get how this situation started in the first place.

u/GardeningIndoors Aug 12 '22

Tourist scams often involve women flirting with men so that another person can take advantage of the situation she created. I thought a pretty woman was flirting with a tourist for fun, not because she knew the bartender would charge me $50 for each beer then get a crowd to threaten me if I didn't pay (Peru sucks). With a story like this, lacking in details in a very touristy area of Spain and the two rescuing bypassers left, I would bet she was involved in a similar scam.

About 7 years ago I was distracted by a flirtatious woman at a Bourbon Street strip club while her friend drugged my drink. I woke up in the passenger’s seat of a random minivan stopped at a red light with a middle aged woman in a weave sucking my half-flaccid penis. I got out of the van and ran when she pulled over at a gas station and instructed me to “take money out so we can party”. I was I think several miles from Bourbon with a dead phone and an empty wallet at probably 2 or 3am and this neighborhood looked like Katrina happened yesterday. I just ran whimpering towards the big bright buildings in the distance until I found my way back to Bourbon. This is a true story.

Edit: a lot of people are being super nice and wishing me well. I appreciate that but I’ll say that for whatever reason this incident didn’t really leave any psychic scars…that I’m currently aware of.

I made it back in one piece, which if you saw where I wound up or just know anything about New Orleans is honestly fairly miraculous, so it kind of just became my all-time greatest story to share at parties…provided I’m in the right company, of course.

I do appreciate all the well wishes, though. I know many people, especially women, do not fair nearly as well as I have after an experience like that. To all of those people who may be reading this I wish you peace and happiness.

Sounds like your drink has been spiked with scopolamine.

One common and particularly dangerous method that criminals use in order to rob a victim is through the use of drugs. The most common [in Colombia] has been scopolamine. Unofficial estimates put the number of annual scopolamine incidents in Colombia at approximately 50,000. Scopolamine can render a victim unconscious for 24 hours or more. In large doses, it can cause respiratory failure and death. It is most often administered in liquid or powder form in foods and beverages. The majority of these incidents occur in night clubs and bars, and usually men, perceived to be wealthy, are targeted by young, attractive women. It is recommended that, to avoid becoming a victim of scopolamine, a person should never accept food or beverages offered by strangers or new acquaintances, nor leave food or beverages unattended in their presence. Victims of scopolamine or other drugs should seek immediate medical attention.

This stuff will make you literally want to do what people ask you to do. Crazy stories of people directing the people who drugged them back to their house and then telling them the codes to all their stuff so they can take their money. Its honestly terrifying.

u/fightingbronze Aug 13 '22

The show impractical jokers has had a few cases like that over the years. The shows based on interacting with real random people, so every now and then they run into a nut case or someone who quickly becomes aggressive.

Really great demonstration of your point and how many people with hair triggers and short fuses are in the world. Nothing bad ever happens cause they have a huge production team watching over everything and ready to come out at any moment, but I could easily see how some random dude making prank videos would end up getting punched eventually without that.

I imagine prostitution is a thing there; the assailant got approached by a woman who flirted him up and was intentionally scantily-clad (or topless), making for stronger motivation for the guy to want a portrait with the woman. There are cons I heard about in East Europe where an online date match will invite a guy to take her out to a hookah lounge (typically run by some thuggy dudes), once the session is over the woman bails and the guy gets absolutely talken to the cleaners with the bill for the hookah and maybe some snacks/fruit.

80

u/ShockAndAwe415 Aug 13 '22

It's not just an Eastern European thing. This is a known scam in Asia. Girl comes up to a tourist at a bar run by the local mob/gang. Guy buys woman drinks and find out those watered down Jack and Cokes are $100 a piece. Guy realizes he's getting ripped off and refuses to pay. Thugs come in and threaten to kick the shit out of him if he doesn't pay.

That’s been my policy on all my travels. This woman approaching you thing happened to me in Koh Samui. I had heard of such scams on some tv show where the host talks about scams in different tourist destinations while he is there.

She did not explicitly ask for a drink but suggested one. As a courtesy I decided to buy one for her too but straight up asked the bartender how much. The bartender insisted on starting a tab, but I refused. He said something in the range of 7k baht each. I laughed and asked for the menu, he said that the drink is not on the menu. I bought two Chang beers for 100 baht a piece and gave one to her. She was not happy. The bartender was not happy either.

I’m an Indian, Thais think of us as cheap travelers. Don’t blame them completely because we haggle a lot at their First Copy Goods malls. If this happened to me, I cannot imagine what the western tourists must go through.

“The altercation reportedly happened after another male offered to take a photo of the pair while they were standing together in the water but ran away with the man's phone as soon as he gave it to him.

Believing his acquaintance had helped to orchestrate the theft, the man turned on her and attempted to drown her in the fountain, local media reports said.”

What a POS. Even if she was an accomplice stealing the phone, doesn’t give him the right to try to kill her. For a F-in phone.

I think the black guy did the right thing. He was put him in a chokehold and was keeping the guy from doing any more damage to the woman. It also kept the woman from catching any punches. It was a perfect setup for the guy in the black shirt to tee off.

Only flaw in the plan was that the guy in the black shirt didn't do any damage and ended up walking away after a few punches.

From the article:

What the National Police discovered was that the victim and the alleged aggressor already knew each other from before and that before this scene, both were at the fountain "in order to cool off." But a third party arrived who asked the detainee for his phone so he could take a photo of the two of them in the water, and he fled with the cell phone of the alleged aggressor.

So guy and girl meet. Jump in fountain together, then another guy shows up and says, 'let me take your pic' then runs off with the phone.

Guy in fountain believes the girl in fountain is part of the crew that just stole his cellphone and proceeds to try and drown her in said fountain.

Man and woman "knew" each other. Both got in the fountain to refresh themselves. A third man comes and the aggressor gives him his cell phone so he takes a picture of both in the fountain.

Third guy runs away with the cell phone and the aggressor blames the woman for being conspiring with the thief and beats the shit out of her.

Just like that line in the beginning of the Boondock Saints. The priest says there is another kind of evil which we must fear most. “… and that is the indifference of good men”.

u/GearheadGaming Aug 13 '22

This is 100% not the takeaway here.

From the backstory it seems the woman being attacked was part of a (successful) con to steal the attacker's phone.

The guy attacking her is probably thinking "Evil succeeds when good people do nothing" and that's why he's so intent on keeping ahold of her. If she gets away, he reasons, she'll run off to con more people. And it's unclear if he's actually trying to drown her, despite what the title claims.

So 1)

Evil probably succeeded here today, it stole a dude's phone,

And 2)

Evil can succeed just fine when good people think they have to take justice into their own hands.

You can't tell me dude in black isn't an NPC. He walked up started punching and then once his enemy's health was below a certain threshold he resets and walks off like nothing. Then his enemies health regenerates a bit and he's back for more.

Looks like old black t shirt always wanted to try punching a human, saw his chance, realised he wasn’t very good at it and then wandered off.

Our man in red is the real hero here.

It happened in Valencia, Spain (link to the sauce in Spanish). Apparently, the asshole and the lady met before, someone stole the asshole mobile when he asked someone to take a photo of them in the fountain, argued that the lady and the thief were a team and tried to drown her. The man was detained and charged with attended murder.

u/Rare_Travel Aug 13 '22

Depending on the clothing it's not as easy as it seems but since the dude is in his undies it's a good option here, just wash the hand after.

He's generally trying to kill someone in that moment though. If he had her head under water, they'd probably be a bit more aggressive.

Secret tip from the book of men: if they get irrationally violent and don't want to let go of something, as gruesome and unsportsmanlike as it is, grab them by the balls and use varying degrees of twisting and pulling.

Chances are that they will let go and try to grab their balls, at least I know that I instinctively and by reflex reach out for my balls.

u/Alagator Aug 13 '22

yeah why fuck up your hand when there is nice spongey balls to smack.

u/torontorollin Aug 13 '22

Or twist his ear or stick your thumb in his eye socket, that will get his undivided attention

12

u/LeaveTheMatrix Aug 13 '22

I think that no-one ever thinks of the ear.

Twisting an ear is downright painful and one of the parts of the body (like the wrist) that if you can control it, then you have a good chance of controlling the person it is attached to.

Black shirt reminded me of a goose, just there for the violence and then walks casually in a goose way to his next opportunity

u/JacksAngryThoughts Aug 13 '22

Survival Tip: If you are ever in a situation that warrants physical violence don't throw punches. Throw elbows and knees, far too many small bones in your hands that break easily when hitting someone's skull. Even a small person can knock out a much larger person if you throw an elbow to the temple. In this situation the second guy coming in didn't have room to throw an elbow but take the palm of your hand and hit the nose in an upward direction. You break a guy's nose like that and he is letting go of whatever he's got ahold of.

Not the easiest situation to throw punches in though. You're wet, footing may be slippery, and you're *trying* not to hit the victim or the other good guy who are both in close contact with the bad guy.
