Sexually Assaulted in Cuba

I visited Cuba with my husband and came down with a severe case of food poisoning. While my husband was at the pool, I was recuperating in my room. I was startled awake when I felt something ‘fluffy’ in the palm of my hand. Before I opened my eyes, I recognised what was in my hand. When I opened my eyes I was shocked to see a man in an orange jumpsuit with his testicles in my hand! I screamed and chased him out of the room. I dressed quickly and ran down to the lobby to report it. I was hysterical and they looked at me with such doubt and confusion. I was appauled at their malaise! I found my husband and we spent the rest of our vacation filling out reports and being interviewed by police. My husband is blind and they did a ‘voice lineup’ because the handyman had an issue with my husband prior to the incident. I couldn’t understand why an attractive man would choose me, a 51 year old woman when there were so many women who would have gladly accepted his advances!! I am not sure why he chose me, but I am actually glad he did! In reporting it, I may have saved many future victims and vindicated those he victimized in the past. I have to look at it that way. When we are little, we think monsters live under the bed. When we get older we discover, they walk among us…I just hope justice was served and some poor underage girl may have been spared.
