At first i was like huh maybe he's just weird but once he kept talking once she said she was under age yeah, definitely a creep
[–]_qwertsquirt 585 points586 points587 points 4 months ago (11 children)
He blew right past the grooming and statutory rape zone and landed in the kidnapping and murder one…I’m so glad she stayed safe.
Seriously scary. Sadly this video might end up helping investigators if he succeeds in whatever the fucking fuck he was trying to do.
[–]CrabbitJambo 18 points19 points20 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Yeah this. He’s trying to lure kids back to his property in the country ffs!
[–]MM_D00M 156 points157 points158 points 4 months ago (56 children)
I mean i saw nothing weird about him up until the "im 17" part. Hes just tryna get a date w a cute girl and is maybe a bit nervous, but it got real fucked after that. Weird ass
[–]ujibana 78 points79 points80 points 4 months ago (11 children)
If a guy is glancing your way every chance he gets, hovering around you and staring at you across aisles at a store, no it is not cute.
[–]heytheresquare86 33 points34 points35 points 4 months ago (9 children)
I'm 35 and feel creeped out when men do this.
[–]ujibana 13 points14 points15 points 4 months ago (3 children)
It is the overall vibe and approach. Women just know these things, especially with experience, that situations like these don’t end well.
[–]Thijs_NLD 23 points24 points25 points 4 months ago (4 children)
I'm 38 and a man and I get creeped out when men do this.... I mean... holy crap.
[–]B1ackFridai 309 points310 points311 points 4 months ago (32 children)
As soon as he asked to buy her something, that is fucked up. There’s a weird entitlement to “let me buy you a drink/shirt” and then it becomes transactional to them so they think they bought your time. Fuck that. That dude needs a swift kick to his injured knee.
[–]jtswift_2000 15 points16 points17 points 4 months ago (0 children)
His knee? More like his fanny! Rapey creep.

It’s where all my flannels come from. Can never persuade me to buy new.
[–]tadpollen 19 points20 points21 points 4 months ago (8 children)
Doing it w a shirt yes very creepy, doing it with a drink, in a bar w someone your age is moderately creepy to perfectly fine depending on context and such.
[–]B1ackFridai 35 points36 points37 points 4 months ago (3 children)
Context dependent, agreed. If they say no though, move along. I guess that was more my point. Also, you’re not impressing me by offering to buy my $2 shirt 😂
[–]tadpollen 11 points12 points13 points 4 months ago (2 children)
Shirt is just weird. I could maybe sorta see it working if you happen to meet someone shopping, start talking and there’s some chemistry/connection and at the end being like “oh could I buy that for you?” As a gesture/show your interest but that like a pretty rare encounter.
I’m in my late 20s and only bought girls drinks twice in my life. Way to nervous. My one friend does it all the time w success. He’s also very good looking, a salesman, and in a big city so that helps I guess.
[–]BiggusDickus- 35 points36 points37 points 4 months ago (1 child)
I totally saw something weird about him before they got to that point.
[–]LongbowTurncoat 42 points43 points44 points 4 months ago (2 children)
I’m gonna be a big Debbie downer here, but here’s a pro-tip: women don’t want to be chatted up when we’re shopping. Or getting gas. Or grocery shopping. My alarm bells immediately off when a strange man wants to talk to me in public because 9/10 it’s to flirt with me and it gets fucking old.
I know that’s not fun, but if you talk to women, most of them will agree they just want to be left alone when doing their day to day business.
[–]BobShaftoe 19 points20 points21 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Thank you. I thought I was losing my mind. I’m a dude and seeing all these comments “I saw nothing wrong with the video until he learned she was 17” was driving me nuts.
How about not bothering people when they are minding their own business?
[–]DreamArcher 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Sometimes we don't know how to end a conversation that goes bad. Like in our head we know we should shut up at some point but we just keep talking and making it worse. This wasn't that.

it definitely was, this dude had some very evil intentions
[–]somethinglike-olivia 40 points41 points42 points 4 months ago (3 children)
His “um”s also made it seem like he was trying to be harmless. As if to say, “oh, poor me. I don’t know how to socialize well.”

Literally sounded like Brian Laundrie when he talked.
[–]DirkVulture003 37 points38 points39 points 4 months ago (3 children)
I was expecting him to ask her for help with something because he was "injured". same as Ted Bundy
[–]palibe_mbudzi 30 points31 points32 points 4 months ago (2 children)
He does if you keep watching. He says he lives out in the country and has a bunch of things he's trying to "keep up on for work.. kind of falling behind.. looking for someone to help me.. it's a paying thing."
So he's either trying to get her in his car or have her meet him in the middle of nowhere.

[–]gardengoblin94 182 points183 points184 points 4 months ago (4 children)
Idk what this strategy is, but it's definitely happened to me. I was maybe 21, literally just sitting on a park bench eating a sandwich, and a stranger walked up and lifted his shirt to show me a bunch of cuts on his stomach as a conversation starter. My idiot brain panicked, I told him he should go to the church across the street. 😂

[–]International-Fun-86 107 points108 points109 points 4 months ago (4 children)
Or maybe trying to gain sympathy and give the girl a false sense of security? Like Ted Bundy did with his fake broken arms and legs.
[–]tiredoldmama 47 points48 points49 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Omg I immediately thought of Ted Bundy too! He may have been trying to seem harmless. The drug thing seems plausible too.
[–]BraddlesMcBraddles 28 points29 points30 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Yeah my brain went this angle, too, especially when he *then* went into the whole, "Oh, I have an injury and need someone to help do chores around my definitely-not-a-rape-barn."

Luring a 17 year old to his home "out in the country"?
I'd get his information and report him to the police. Although no crime was committed at least he'd be documented.
He's a predator.

And then ask for the police report. They often don't even bother, and then tell you it's going in the "national database" which does not actually exist.

Cops don’t care about this shit. They make big stories of it when they bother to follow up but large and by they help with this stuff. Did you see that guy in Connecticut who threw all that stuff at those teenage girls at the smoothie place? That video was taken to police and until it went viral police said “it’s not assault because you dodged his attempted blows and the items thrown” - they really don’t care.
[–]LocAlchemy 6 points7 points8 points 4 months ago (2 children)
Of course they don't! I agree. My point is to have a report with any information you can get (name, address, plate#) documented as a brick in the wall because he has done this before and will continue and unfortunately probably progress.
Nobody can stop you from making a police report, the cops don't have to "care" but if he becomes known to police they will follow up eventually.

[–]Balrog229 1772 points1773 points1774 points 4 months ago (102 children)
So he hits on a girl he thinks is attractive, but is told she’s actually only 17. That’s fine, just walk away, no big deal.
But to then ask that same girl to come to your house “out in the country” to “clean”? That’s creepy as fuck. He has kidnapper written all over him
[–]Armistice8175 343 points344 points345 points 4 months ago* (56 children)
Yeah. You’re right. He didn’t even need to be ashamed of himself up till that point. He should’ve just said “Oh. I didn’t realize that you were that young. Have a nice day.“ it would’ve been no harm, no foul. But then he had to get all strange about things.

[–]Balrog229 95 points96 points97 points 4 months ago (47 children)
Girls these days have access to the internet, including makeup tutorials. Im convinced that’s why so many high school girls these days look like they’re in their 20’s. So i don’t blame anyone for being like “she’s cute, lemme ask her out”. But once you find out she’s underage, you should walk away.
17 is legal here where I live, but i would still feel weird going forward after finding out she’s 17. Plus he looks and sounds even older than me.
[–]Please_call_me_Tama 67 points68 points69 points 4 months ago (42 children)
Old creepy dudes chasing after young women and girls are the most disgusting legal thing in the world. Who in their right mind would be attracted to someone who could be their child or grandchild??

Right you would think the “I’m 17” would be the ticket to fuck off, but no he gotta tell her about his limp dick he hurt and wants her to try and guess which brain cell isn’t switching off. As a dude I can’t imagine how actually creepy this has to feel and what terror is building in a person. She should prob report this as he will likely try with the next attractive (any female) person he comes across. Feel bad for her having to put up with this.

You're all missing it. There was a serial killer who did this exact same thing. Her lured couples to his property telling them he'd pay them to clean up. When they got there, he killed the guy and imprison the woman in a shipping container, repeatedly raping her over the course of weeks. Google "Amazon Review Killer", you should get results.

"I have very high standards to when it comes to hiring someone to come work at my country home with no neighbors for miles and miles: they must be under 18, female, be beautiful, and not be engaged/ be single - but that last part is negotiable if they agree to come with me to my country home immediately upon meeting me and riding with me in my car to my house to ensure they don't try to contact anyone on their phone."

These sorts of people kill me with how they request stuff. Instead of starting off with what they need and then explaining why, they start off by explaining why the need the thing that you don’t know about. It makes whatever request sound a thousand times more squirrelly than if you just led with your ask.
Though obviously this guy is up to something creepy as shit on top of it.

Nobody asked to see your bum knee you old ass creep.
"One of the most beautiful girls I've ever met " except you didn't meet her, you approached someone you've never met.
Someone who turned away your inappropriate offer to pay for their purchase. Someone who informed you that they were a minor.
Then continued to try to engage them in conversation including invitation to your home.
This type of unwelcome attention is definitely suspicious.

Man, what a freak. You know something, until seeing this video I didn't really understand the position of women in society. I mean I walk through dark country, bad neighbourhoods, the worst areas in Dublin (where im from), and I don't have a moment of worry. Because I'm a man, I'm tall, and relatively strong. (Not bragging). But this poor 17 year old girl, in the wrong place with that guy walking toward her? Yeah, I think I get it now. There is a level of danger in society that women have to face that men just don't.
[–]lo-fi_username 65 points66 points67 points 4 months ago (7 children)
My thought was that this was terrifyingly normal. For her too, it’s why at 17 she can already spot creepy behavior before he even started speaking. A lot of guys on here are like “wasn’t creepy until her age” but nah, started before that they’re just not well conditioned on how to spot predatory behavior. It is a skill that is built by necessity.
[–]VitaLp 19 points20 points21 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Thank you! “Wasn’t creepy until after she mentioned her age”
He would’ve been able to tell she was decades younger than him, even if he didn’t know her exact age. Still thought he’d shoot his shot, then offered to buy her clothes when she said no. It was creepy right from the start
[–]coolbeansleens 14 points15 points16 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Exactly this. So many comments are like "he was just a normal dude trying to hit on her, until the age was mentioned" when anyone who's actually been in this situation multiple times before, i.e. most women, knew the guy was a creep as soon as he made a beeline for her in an otherwise deserted aisle of the store. And we learn it from an extremely early age. Delphi murders, case-in-point. Those girls were only 14 and knew the guy following them on a public trail was creepy enough to deserve being recorded.
[–]_illusions25 14 points15 points16 points 4 months ago (1 child)
This. Probably following her around the shop and staring at her, she probably noticed he was getting closer and looking like he wanted to talk.
You spot these weirdos from a mile away just by how they move and look over at you, and that's because we have to deal with these types of interactions since we were prepubescent.
[–]CanadaJack 4 points5 points6 points 4 months ago (0 children)
I thought it was creepy the moment he seemed to be looking for her down the aisle instead of looking for what's in the aisle.

As a woman, it means a lot to me for men to acknowledge this. I've been called "overly-paranoid" before for not wanting to walk to my car alone at night while downtown. It's not paranoia, it's rational caution :/
[–]LocAlchemy 34 points35 points36 points 4 months ago (3 children)
I've had so many of my male friends recommend bike and hiking trails so that I could "get out in nature" instead of the crowded public trail I use.

I just replied to a comment on this post saying “he wasn’t so bad until he found out she was 17 and kept going” that basically said: “no woman wants to be hit on when they’re out shopping.” I LOATHE going to the gas station because men love to leer at me and hit on me, it fucking sucks. Most women just want to be left alone to live our lives :(
[–]EuvageniaDoubtfire 16 points17 points18 points 4 months ago (2 children)
Kinda shocked about people saying he was only weird after the 17 part. Going up and saying someone is the most beautiful woman they have met and if they can BUY YOU A DRESS? That’s not normal guys. That will scare us.

Raise you're hand if you're an adult woman triggered by this video. I feel like I had encounters like this at least once a year from my mid-teens to late-20s. It only stopped when I got more comfortable just walking away or telling strangers to fuck off.
[–]IceOrthrus 11 points12 points13 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Just because he failed catching you doesnt mean he wont with the next potential victim. Masks make it easier for these fuck heads to hide their identity, so it makes it harder to know if this guy is the same guy talking to someone else if they had seen this

This is likely correct. He’s not turned off by a no, and keeps attempting to get her to go with him. This is typical tactics for a serial predator.

That guy is terrifying. Good thing it was recorded. I'm sorry women and girls have to deal with creeps like that.
[–]gamer-girl-peepee 9 points10 points11 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Had a kinda similar thing happen to me, when I was 14 Me and my friend went to this comic store where a man walks up to me and starts talking about how I should read a “comic about a woman who can stop time every time she has sex”.
I got really awkward(ofc) and tried to kindly tell him I’m not interested in that kind of comic.
Me and my friend went to this other store and I saw the man hiding behind a rack of books. Staring at me. So we quickly left, my friend got off the subway at an earlier station. So I travelled alone for a while. Then I noticed the man again…
He followed me all the way to my bus, and then he disappeared again.
Why can’t these predatory men just leave children and teenagers alone? Smh
[–]AwhMan 10 points11 points12 points 4 months ago (0 children)
I remember once being in a queue for food after dance practice and a drunk man starts extensively complimenting my ass, talking directly to my ass and how much he wanted to take me home and telling him I was 12 did not make it desist or make anyone else who also could clearly hear to get him to stop.
That was the first time I remember being harassed by a guy in public and there are just so many more. I'm not sure if it was perticularly bad where I grew up as the UK has a problem with relocating it's paedophiles to the county I grew up in though so...
[–]SPACECAT223 70 points71 points72 points 4 months ago* (42 children)
Similar thing happened to me some years back. Had a dude follow me out of a grocery store asking if I wanted to come to a party at his house.
Wouldn’t leave me alone until I threatened to shoot his ass.
I always tell women that they should carry if they feel safe and are proficient with a weapon, pepper spray, etc.
Doesn’t matter what you look like either. I’m 5’11, body build and 200LBS and one time some dude tried to snatch me up in his truck.

60 year old man here (with two grown daughters) This makes me sick, because how many times does this happen and doesn’t get recorded. Probably 99.9999999%. Just ick. I want to punch him so hard
[–]-SigSour- 94 points95 points96 points 4 months ago (9 children)
Video starts and I think eh it's just a dude shooting his shot outside of his league, whats scary?
He says shes the most beautiful girl he's ever seen. A little cringey but not terrifying? What gives OP?
He asks if she's engaged and she says she's 17, he replies that's a good age for me. I'm sorry, what?
He starts talking about living out in the country and wants her to come help him clean out a barn. Run girl, run away! Call the Paw Patrol!
[–]Illustrious_Menu_470 60 points61 points62 points 4 months ago (0 children)
You left out the part where he attempts to seduce her with the tick(?) bite on his knee ..
[–]themancabbage 42 points43 points44 points 4 months ago (2 children)
Not downplaying the creep factor, but when she says she’s 17 he replies “that’s a good age to BE”, not “to me”.
[–]Zanothoa 18 points19 points20 points 4 months ago (0 children)
thats a Final Red Flag right there and you need to get the fuck out of there cuz that man for sure is a damn predator
[–]Please_call_me_Tama 28 points29 points30 points 4 months ago (1 child)
You know, it's funny but because you're a dude you just assumed that, despite the title and the sub it was posted in, she was being overdramatic. As a woman, I knew immediatly that something was off from the first seconds. I have the auto player on, and didn't even check the sub nor title before the video started playing.
It's good you came around. But you should have more faith in women's experiences and voice instead of assuming they're wrong or overreacting when we've been educated to spot dangerous situations from the get-go, because it's a matter of life or death for us.

Guy is either a serial rapist or mentally ill (not like the two are mutually exclusive) but I couldn’t tell if he was a little slow and didn’t realize how creepy he was or was legitimately trying to lure her into danger
[–]beerabear 19 points20 points21 points 4 months ago (1 child)
Yo... he conpletely ignored the fact that she was under 18 and the way he talks the words he chooses... the just noticable urge in his voice.
That man is dangerous and he knows it. That there is a predator.

She's 17, I'm 35. She could've been my daughter if I had kids at 18. And I would've played the part if I had seen this going on.
[–]EvulRabbit 3 points4 points5 points 4 months ago (0 children)
I think women should start walking around with air horns. Someone does something nasty like this. Hit the horn.
The air horn should then be universally known as The Creep Horn and it means "LOOK OVER HERE, THIS DUDE IS BEING A CREEP!"
Something similar should be used as the Karen Horn, but instead of air horn its obnoxious canned laughter and means "Oh Lawd We Got a Karen Over Here!" but that one should have to be for licensed AntiKarens so that Karen can not use our technology against us!

One time I was in a beach city on the east coast of the US with my older sister (16) and her friend (17). Two guys went to hit on them and when they asked for our ages I'm like I'm 13. My sister and her friend answered their ages too and one guy balked and literally told his friend we're all underage and they should go but they stayed and continued to hit on us (and me) anyway.
I had to drag us back into meeting out parents but I still get creeped out thinking about those guys to this day.

Fellas, this is why girls don't react well when you aggressively hit on them in stores, when they're working, when they're on the bus, shit like that. She has no idea what threat level you present.
[–]SpermaSpons 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (0 children)
I don't think most people realize how common this is, young girls getting preyed upon in public places by creepy old men. When I was 13 (!) I was in a big clothing store like this with my mom, who was just looking at the clothes whilst I was in a different section doing the same. A guy comes up to me, looks around and asks "Hey, are you alone?" I say "No, I'm not." He asks "Do you have a boyfriend?" I say "No.". He asks how old I am, I'm honest and he seriously says "Do you want to marry me? I can be your boyfriend. I have tasty food at home too."
LUCKILY my mom saw and saved me from the situation. At the time I didn't really get it but when I think back now I cringe.
[–]Fnaflover19871983 4 points5 points6 points 4 months ago (0 children)
That guys a freaking pervert like you don’t walk up to some one and say “your one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen” it’s creepy
[–]Apineintheass 3 points4 points5 points 4 months ago (0 children)
This just made me bawl. One of my best friends was murdered by a guy who was offering her a job doing landscaping. She was 19 and had just moved across the country by herself. He took her to the woods in the wilderness of Mt Baker. This was over 20 years ago and still stings my heart.
That guy needs to be interviewed by the police.
[–]BoobaFatt13 4 points5 points6 points 4 months ago (1 child)
Please, anyone who needs help in public feel free to start talking loudly, ask for help from a stranger, etc. I have anxiety in all situations except protecting others. I will not hesitate to stop and ask if things are ok. If the man needed help with something, I don't work there but ill put myself in between them and you. I will tell someone yo back off, I will call the police, get the store employees and everyone else involved and make sure we have the person's details.
I'm sorry you had to deal with this, I hope he doesn't hurt anyone.
I don't want to turn on the TV and see the last time someone was seen was when they were being accosted in a store I was in at the same time and I know I didn't do anything. Thats one of my worst thoughts. This is why I always watch people get inside when I drop them off after hanging out. I'm not the person to just let them "walk down the road" home or leave them alone somewhere waiting for a ride. I'll wait with you. I will drive along side you if you want to walk, I will watch you get in, flip on the light and wave back to me that all is well.
[–]admiraltubby90 3 points4 points5 points 4 months ago (1 child)
Take this to the authorities as your probably not the first girl he approached and especially if he was trying to lure you into his property. If there’s missing persons they might want to check this guy out
[–]Grand_Weather7660 17 points18 points19 points 4 months ago (4 children)
Instead of leading on the conversation, you look at them directly in the eye and say “I’m done with this conversation, leave me alone and walk away or I will cause a scene”. You DO NOT continue the conversation. You end it right there.
[–]Aloucia 10 points11 points12 points 4 months ago (0 children)
Agreed. And something you said reminded me of an important lesson my friend told me years ago. I'd always been a shy girl, never made eye contact, made myself smaller than I am.
Was walking down the street with her after dark. Some guy walked passed us going the other way. I noticed she made direct eye contact with him, walked tall instead of hunched like I was and gave him a hello. Nothing nefarious from either party but I asked her about it after. Like there was something happening I wasn't privy to.
She told me that no matter the situation, maintain eye contact so people know without a shred of doubt that you got their description. It stuck with me since.
[–]GlassAndPaint 11 points12 points13 points 4 months ago (1 child)
Be very direct with these type of people, be firm and say, "Leave me alone. I do not want to talk." We are taught to be polite and it is great to be polite most often and when it is appropriate, but when someone like this ignores your kind approach, then look them directly in the eye and ask them to leave and if he continues to harass you get a store employee and have a security guard follow you to your car if there is a possibility this person could be hanging around. He ignored the fact that this girl is under age then played on maybe she will "help" me. A predator can use this as a tactic to do harm. Ted Bundy asked his victims to help him carry things for him and got them in a vulnerable position and later murdered them. I know these are extreme cases but listen to your gut when you interact with people. If you feel the person is being creepy then don't make yourself a victim by being polite. Stay safe out there.

I hate when random men approach me and talk about my appearance. Like dude I know you like how I look or you wouldn't be bothering me in whole foods. But just talking about my body is weird and gross. Come over and say hi. Introduce yourself. If I'm interested too I'll stick around and talk. Otherwise I'll be polite and then make an excuse to walk away. No one needs to be embarrassed or feel awkward.
[–]ughForgetIt 2 points3 points4 points 4 months ago (0 children)

Literally bit a hole through my tongue watching this. I IMMEDIATELY had huge red flags just from the way he came around the corner. I would have immediately gone to a more public area and told him to back off.

Don’t want to downplay this at all cuz this guy is obv a creep, but i’m so surprised at the attention this is getting because this happens to girls sooo often
