The attempted abduction of two young Venezuelan men by some hairy aliens in 1954

A text of a telegram sent overnight on Thursday, December 9, 1954, by a writer of the newspaper, "El Nacional" in the city of Carora (Venezuela), announced that, "18 years old Lorenzo Flores and 17 years old Jesus Gomez, both natives of this city and office workers, were hunting around Transandina road, between the areas known as Chirico and Cerro de Las Tres Torres, when they spotted a strange bright object at least 50 meters away. The first impression was that they were seeing a car, but then realized that it was not a car approaching the site".

Flores stated, "After seeing the object from where we were hunting, we decided to leave behind the bikes that we were riding to get closer for a better view. We then observed a round object, which had the shape of two overlapping washbasins (one inverted above the other), of about ten meters or more in diameter and was radiating heat from underneath. The object was suspended in the air at a distance of 80 centimeters from the ground.

"Suddenly we saw four small beings, about a meter tall, exiting from the object. Sensing our presence, the four rushed on my friend, Jesus Gomez, and together tried to force him inside the object. I had no other recourse but to grab my shotgun, which was already unloaded, to rescue my friend. I swung hard at them with the rifle butt, which felt as though I was striking a rock or something very hard because the shotgun was completely demolished without causing even a minor injury on the small beings.

"Fortunately, in this scuffle and with Gomez fighting back, he managed to escape from the midgets' arms". The two hunters showed up at police headquarters in Carora with their shirts completely torn to shreds and Gomez had minor scratches on the body produced obviously by the fingernails of the small beings and/or by the branches of the bushes where the scuffle took place. Gomez told police that he, "Could not see their eyes or their long fingernails, but we saw loads of hair covering their entire body. They were four small beings, all the same size, but terribly strong, so we thought we were going to be dragged into their ship".

Flores declared that, "We managed to escape from the small beings and had no other alternative but to run to a distant road about 20 meters away. When we looked again, at where the ship was, it had already taken off. We stayed on the road until a truck passed by heading towards Inlaca and the driver gave us a lift. He assured us that he had seen a bright-lit object go out from where we were, just before twelve o’clock.

"The truck driver took us straight to the police where we appeared to report what happened. There we arrived without shoes and with torn shirts". Immediately after reporting the incident to the police authorities, several investigating officials approached us comprised of: Ramon Gonzalez and Ramon Gudino and detectives Victor Morales, Modesto Suarez, Rafael Ereu and Serafin Fernandez. They all went to the site to make appropriate inquiries and found the site about 25 meters from the road on an esplanade with signs of struggle. There they found the shotgun totally destroyed, the machete, the abandoned bicycles, shoeprints in the ground belonging to the two hunters and smaller footprints similar to those of a monkey, but are not of this type of animal.

They also noticed the presence of a strong odor similar to sulfur in the environment. Subsequently, the two young men were subjected to interrogations and once again, their story was deemed factual as the Carora police chief, Manuel Azuaje, declared, "The boys are well known in Carora as honest decent individuals. It seems very strange that they had been able to invent such a story to draw attention from the authorities". They were later transferred to Captain Julio Chacon, head of National Security (the fearsome police force of the dictatorship at that time) who initially declared that they were perpetrating a hoax and then intensively interrogated them separately; using certain unorthodox methods, which the National Security agents possessed, but could not find anything other than what the two youths initially claimed. Eventually these investigators were convinced that what Flores and Gomez had seen was actually a flying saucer.

This case which occurred on December 9, 1954 (about 10 days after), is similar to another that occurred in the same year, in the same country, with the same very strong hairy aliens and similarly with two men who fought against the aliens who tried to abduct them. As such, in November 29, 1954, in Venezuela, a Cuban businessman named Gustavo Gonzalez and his Venezuelan helper José Ponce bitterly defended themselves against some hairy aliens who tried to force them into their spacecraft.

Although there have been many unexplained sightings in the town of Lajas, the situation there has been hyped by the amount of lies and exaggeration by a group of so-called, "ufologists" who ignore other areas of Puerto Rico to promote tourism in Lajas. That was evident when my wife and my daughter confronted a terrifying experience in the town of Aguada with extraterrestrials and that group of charlatans refused our plea for help. Of course, if it happened in Lajas they would have jumped on the opportunity for fame and tourism for that town. Those hoaxes and lies were approved and sanctioned by the then mayor of that town who named route 303 "The extraterrestrial route". The idea of building an "UFOport" (ovnipuerto), “la llorona sightings" and the biggest hoax of them all, "that a UFO crashed there" all this could only be found in a science fiction novel.

The dancing alien

About me

Ufologist, criminal investigator, musician, artist and writer.

I worked 20 years for the New York City Department of Correction. First as a Correction Officer for 4 years, Captain for 12 years, and as a Deputy Warden for 4 years. As a law enforcement officer and supervisor, I have conducted countless of criminal investigations, some for unimaginable allegations.

On June of 2005, after my retirement, I moved to Puerto Rico with my family where my wife and my daughter faced extraordinary experiences with extraterrestrials. These alien encounters, subsequent abductions of my wife and the lack of help from so-called, "ufologists" here on the island, prompted me to become involved in the field of ufology and in the need to help others who have had similar experiences.
