    Wow! Barry, I am so sorry to hear what happened to you. I hope you are taking it easy and have a speedy recovery. I was in Aruba in May for 3 weeks, I have been going to Aruba for some 15 yrs now, I walked alone at nite from the Alahambra Casino to the LaCabana, a nice 20 minute walk, it was dark as the streets are not really lit well at nite. I felt somewhat safe as I was walking on the sidewalk near the road but as I say I was alone and it was dark. Hmmmm, now that I have read what happened to you maybe I should think twice about walking alone at night. I have always walked alone at night with no problems but will think twice about it when I return. I am now thinking of bringing my tazer with me because of what happened to you. Yeah, I will bring it with me on my next trip. My heart goes out to you on this hideous assault that was commited on you. People really su...k!!!!

    Barry what an awful experience!

    Is there anything any of us can do to be supportive? Letter to the Police, promote "neighborhood watch", etc?

    Hope you get better soon. And thanks for posting on the forum so onlookers could read about what happened.

    I'm so sorry to hear this happened. The last couple of times we visited the island I have started to feel uneasy all over the Palm Beach area at night. I often drop off my husband at the Hyatt for some casino play and then head home. I used to stop off to do a little shopping or to pick up some coffee or dessert to take home but with my new sense of uneasiness in the area I have been going straight home and feeling like I used to feel in NY before the crime rate dropped so low. I had been trying to tell myself that I was imagining things in Aruba. Not good to hear that my sensibilities were well-founded.

    Unfortunately its the sign of the times, anywhere you go, you need to be aware and not walk alone....I think as "tourists" we tend to think of aruba as the old aruba....things have changed everywhere....just use common sense, and hopefully they will snag these little punks...that hang out around the palm beach area now...instead of downtown.

    Barry,
    Sorry I missed you at the flea market today. Maureen was telling me about what happened to you. I then remembered reading about it on this board. Hope you are on your way to a full recovery. I was also a victim of crime here in Aruba 7 years ago, but thank goodness I was not physically hurt. I did not realize that there was crime in Aruba. It is not reported in the tourist news.
    Thank you for supporting arfaruba. I hope that you enjoy your painting.

    Kathy

    Barry,
    Sorry to hear of this incident. I just read about it and your post of the limited or no response. My suggestion as to how to pursue further would be to seek out the elected officials and insist that they step in. If you can get your friends to join in and also contact the elected officials so much the better. Try not to let the issue drop no matter how frustrated you may get.

    I wish you a speedy recovery and success in pursueing closure.

    Thank you and I really have put this behind me as a random act but just this past Sat. in the parking lot 12 noon GOING TO THE FLEA MARKET a lady was on the ground and in the pictures they show a baseball bat. I have been coming to Aruba since 1995 and this poor Women was from Aruba so you just never know what to think. Local's blame most of it on having CABLE. They see all others have on the reality shows and want this life style. I really think it may contribute to thinking/wishing for a different life but I just think it is PUNKS. They have always and will always be in the world ...dont get me wrong, Justice should be served...
