Woman, Elda Shepherd, Wakes Up To Man In Her Room, Attacks Him at Dominican Republic Resort, Social Media Jumps In To Help

Social media jumps in to help woman at Dominican Republic resort after she wakes up to intruder in her room.

A woman allegedly woke up to an intruder in her hotel room at the Breathless Punta Cana Resort and Spa in the Dominican Republic.

This story follows after recent travel news on the deaths of 3 different people who stayed at the Dominican Republic hotel named Bahia Principe Hotel in La Romana who died five days apart last month.

Reports like this are putting a lot of people on edge about traveling to the Dominican Republic and other destinations and this story may put even more people on alert while traveling.

A woman by the name of Elda Shepherd took to social media about what happened to her while staying at Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa and what was currently going on as it was happening. Shepherd’s post got social media into action with friends, family and strangers participating to make sure she was safe.

It is believed that Elda Shepherd traveled with a group through World Class Global Connect LLC travel agency however, traveled without a companion therefore booking her room as a single occupant.

According to the account by Elda Shepherd, she had returned to her room after being out and decided to relax with a drink and take a dip in the hot tub. Shepherd says she went to the front desk to get assistance with the hot tub and an employee was sent and got it started and left.

After this, Shepherd stated that she went to bed about 11’ish and at around 2AM she woke up to the guy who had fixed the hot tub in her room as she laid naked.

The man was stated to have not spoken English and instead used his phone to ask her, “Why are you alone, you don’t want company?”

It seems Shepherd’s adrenaline kicked into gear after this and she jumped up.

“One of us has to die, and I’m going home to my kids” and starting swinging….

Elda Shepherd says the man ran out after she started swinging and this is when she took to social media to update on what had just happened to her.

Shepherd was told that the police is allegedly only open from 9 to 5 and was also told that the guy was already arrested which made her question the hotel.

In addition, Shepherd said the hotel tried to bribe her with money following the incident.

Friends and family encouraged Shepherd not to go anywhere with the hotel staff who came to talk to her more than once. Everyone encouraged Shepherd to wait it out for the U.S. Embassy and police, which she did.

In the end, the man was identified in a line-up.

Shepherd came back to update everyone via a live video about her safety and she informed viewers that she stayed in a friend’s room.

Unfortunately, due to the long process that she had to endure, she stated that she missed her flight and had to stay another night in the Dominican Republic.

  1. Suppose to be traveling here in a few days now I dnt want to it’s starting to feel like no where is safe at this point. I’ve been making myself paranoid reading all these stories and with so many mixed reviews you have no clue what to believe anymore…where’s all this security other folks speak of in their reviews.

  2. You have the be very careful not just there but others places as well folks are just crazy and mean Thank God that she fought back it’s just horrible and for that person that said this was fake don’t bring karma to your door I promise you that you wouldn’t like it it’s her story not yours stay safe

  3. Im staying out of those beautiful exotic places! I have a passport, but…im not going…they are desperate over there and have no laws such as the United States!

  4. As single travelers we must take precautions and I am not sure if people are aware that they should lock and latch their doors while in their rooms.

    • Have you been watching her videos on her page. She has been recording every incident. You must be a Trump support, because the proof is in the pudding and you think it’s fake news🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️

    • It’s 100% true. The videos are public. The man used a key to get into her room. You know, the same way the cleaning staff let’s themselves in. Dig deeper….

    • Why don’t you go to DR and hopefully someone targets you and then maybe we’ll tell you your accusations are false

  5. Thank God for your safety! That was my next trip this year. However, I am cancelling regardless whether I lose my money or not.
    I never take trips along though.
    Stay Safe! Blessings and To God Be the Glory!

    • Thank God!! Everything worked out and you are safe. Too many incidents are going on over there. I only travel there once for vacation

  6. This is so disappointing and unnerving. I am a single independent travel agent who books lots of travel for other singles including myself.

  7. Thank you for sharing this story this young lady is my god sister and and my youngest daughter’s godmother and hopefully her experience will help others who plan on vacationing in punta cana not to until the government deems it safe

  8. I thank God you have kept social media abreast. A lot of tourist are dead and people are confused about their death.
    Thank you for fighting back stay with people you trust until you leave.
