December 2015 was the time of the incident at a popular hunting spot nearing Ocho Rios close to the beach, in my more naughtier years lol I have had some quick encounters there; the fellow cruiser made his way there for a potential hook-up and met the man turned perpetrator, the man is also a repeat visitor and is known for his gifted endowment; both had made the move to commence some fun and the quick business was eventually dealt with; the men walked to another location and started a conversation which is not the norm in those outdoor circumstances but none the less it occurred; usually persons leave the scene and go their separate ways with a sort of ‘next time’ expectation resonated in their minds. In a radical turn around by the perpetrator in terms of his demeanor he started to accuse the not yet injured cruiser of forcing him into sex and he was not happy from the get go of their encounter and he was uncomfortable with sex with men and that it was a sin etc; this was said despite no such feelings were expressed in the heat of the moment and fun.
My cruiser colleague in his report by phone continued that he found it puzzling as to the reaction by the man; so he decided to walk him out and leave him alone as he the cruiser concluded the man was confused he could not be bothered to engage that despite the man was known by himself and others on the ‘network.’ It was at that juncture things got physical as the man felt aggrieved saying among other things (choice expletives) he felt disrespected seeing the cruiser was walking him out or not responding as he wanted him to regarding the discomfort he felt albeit after a sexual encounter. The men fought briefly and in the tussle a piece of board lying nearby was used by the ‘confused’ man to inflict blows on the victim in the case.
He sustained minor injuries and a sprained arm after all was said and done, this is not the first time I have heard reports of such clashes with men in the cruising world and subsequent physical injury. On my Wordpress blog I carried a similar story some years ago as well, funny how history seems to repeat itself and such encounters are so similar with violence factoring in most cases I am aware of.

There was similar matter nearing the old cholera cemetery in 2007 on West King’s House road when there was an active cruising group there some of whom have moved on or migrated to other lands; a man was set upon by another even after both men engaged in a partnered masturbation exercise; upon demanded payment of some kind not met the perpetrator reacted violently but the victim so to speak manage to escape.
The Sandy Gully back in the late nineties when it featured as a site for homeless MSM, commercial sex workers and cruisers sharing areas along the strip had an incident that ended up with man stabbed and hospitalized for weeks with the perpetrator set upon by other men at Springs Plaza by the KFC store when that part of town was a hangout. The victim was eventually aided by then community divo matriarch so to speak Donald Thompson aka Fay Donaway who had an apartment nearby by Gore Terrace.
The present incident continued:
Things eventually cooled after a stone throwing response from the injured cruiser so as to defend himself and chase away the perpetrator. The man has also threatened he intends to out my cruiser colleague if he is seen in the town or its environs to which the cruiser reminded him that they were both the ‘same thing’ meaning he was gay too so he should not pretend he is heterosexual in public to deflect scrutiny if and when he attempts to out the cruiser. Again I am amazed at how some brothers just can literally change in a moment’s notice.
I have had my run-ins too way back in the day when I used to feature a spot downtown; one of the longest serving haunts until the geographical changes that came to erase it. I was forced to defend myself after a guy who I just jacked off with wanted money and attempted to rob me as well of cash and such. Thankfully I am able to handle myself and put a spoke in his wheel with his intent; another time I was forced to wrestle with a thug who claimed he wanted to penetrate me at any cost to which I refused to give in and like the previous reference he was surprised at my response as I was able to inflict a few blows to his face in defence. From that day onwards he has a long term bitterness towards me and has even attempted to impugned all kinds of allegations on the street about me. That has since died down and he claims he has gone back to women as it were.
The perils of the ‘hunt’ are numerous outside of ‘confused’ or unsure men who seemingly cannot seem to resist their urge for some sexual play with a man but are conflicted with their own inner values and self awareness/acceptance. Robbery to is also a major challenge as some men use luring other men into encounters with a view to perpetrate a heist of some kind; sometimes under threat of being publicly labelled as gay so as to cause a mob to follow and such.
My cruiser brethren says he is going to be more circumspect from now on and avoid that area for now so as not to run into the ‘confused’ man.
Peace & tolerance
