He left in an unknown direction after being discovered...SBPD responding.

All kidding aside, I hope they catch this guy....

He'll likely not have a job now.

Hope he was just taking a shower.

More than likely it's not the only shower he has used.

He was just making sure the shower drain worked properly! Can't make this stuff up...

I'd be pretty p. o. if the guy was using my expensive organic body wash and organic shampoo and organic creme rinse. Some jerks are just too cheap to buy their own stuff.

perhaps he is one of our many working homeless people trying to just have a shower. We need shower and laundry facilities for our homeless population. Perhaps he is not some weird creep...just some one struggling to get by...or...if he is a weird sicko..lock him up...

 

 COMMENT 764572 agree helpful negative off topic

The way it is written that he was "caught" makes me think he is doing this covertly. I would guess the maintenance man is currently without a home and this is his current practice. I am not implying in any way that this behavior should be condoned.

Will that woman ever feel safe again in her apartment? The maintenance men have complete access?

It is interesting to see how humans tend to go to the extreme and mostly negative when something occurs that they know at most a snippet of information. I wonder if the people posting could think of something other than the most extremely negative scenarios?

Perhaps the guy was working in someones apartment for hours and got debris/grease/etc. all over him? There are numerous scenarios for the maintenance man to have to shower.

 

 ROGER DODGER agree helpful negative off topic

2017-03-20 12:07 PM

Will if the case is that he is homeless and needed a shower why doesn't he go to the East Beach Bath House or get a membership to the YMCA? How about the Carrillo building? I used those showers fror 3 years...Why take a shower in a woman's rented apartment without her knowledge till she caught him? Creep...How about using the managers apartment or washing off with the garden hose....There is no excuse.

 

 ROGER DODGER agree helpful negative off topic

2017-03-20 12:11 PM

@582 Not without the renters knowledge and nothing was said about work being done in the apartment and if there was there would be a 24 hour notice...None of that was mentioned all that was said was the Apartment complex's maintenance man was caught using a renters shower the renter being a woman and she walked in and caught him in her shower.

We don't necessarily even know what he was doing in there. Maybe he was caught nudie by surprise and jumped in the shower to hide.

 

 COMMENT 764590 agree helpful negative off topic

@582, even if your scenario is correct, that does not excuse any repairman using a homeowner's or tenant's shower without prior permission, which it does not appear was given. Please expand on other of your numerous scenarios which you consider this behavior to be ok.

 

 COMMENT 764594 agree helpful negative off topic

2017-03-20 01:20 PM

@582 ummmmm there's no good reason for this maintenance man to have taken a shower in this woman's private home without permission. Or be doing anything other than maintenance work that the tenant should have had prior knowledge of. Wtf?!

@587 and what good reason would there be for him to be "nudie" in this woman's home?! Ew.

@Rodger and others

Rodger - you just pick stuff up off the scanner. Do you want to tell how much data is pushed across on the scanner? I seriously doubt that anything was mentioned with any form of depth. Isn't this why the police go to the location, you know to INVESTIGATE?

The rest - you have no idea yet still. You assume that there is just ONE tenant in the apartment. There are plenty of situations in that complex where there are 3-4 people living there. So it EASILY could have been noticed and said, go ahead do repairs.

And as far as washing up? If I spent 4 hours working in an apartment covered with metal shavings, grease, etc, hell yeah, I would want to wash that off of me.

But back to the hilarity of the lynch mob. Notice how no one was arrested?

582s comment proves why this guy thought it'd be alright if he took a shower at a random house he was working at.

The beauty of following scanner calls is the absolute fantastical scenarios that are repeated without question.

Who was the reporting party? The lady of the house? How did she know the man in her shower was the maintenance man but couldn't tell which direction he ran off in? If she recognized him wouldn't he have an apt in the same building?

Did he dry off properly and dress before he took off? Did he leave any tools behind? Clothes? Ridiculous especially since Roger and the lynch mob love to spin the perv angle at every opportunity.

Not surprised how many kooks on EdHat are trying to rationalize a man naked in the shower of someone's home with no permission to be doing so.

 

 ROGER DODGER agree helpful negative off topic

2017-03-20 02:31 PM

@582 and @602....Yep your right just report what I hear on the scanner I would assume there would be no arrest because the victim said the naked man took off in an unknown direction. The only kind of people I know of who get offended by calls like this are offenders themselves. When I post these calls I leave out personal information as the police have to conduct an investigation when their investigation is complete maybe another news source will release the story. I think it's important that potential victims be warned that there are people like this in the areas they have offended. A subject taking a shower without permission of a renter in their apartment weather or not they did work or not is an offender. "Roger and the Lynch Mob" Sounds like a cool rock group...But who is lynching who Folks are sharing their opinions is all...

It's difficult to grasp the cause of this situation. Our apartment building gives 24 hour notice if there is work to be done. Always 2 workers arrive and always fully clothed. This scenario simply does not make sense.

@628, simple ... the maintenance man could be a total perv, saw the woman leave home, popped in to perv out in her shower and got caught.

this is true roger anyone trying to defend this sort of behavior themselves has a guilty conscience and probably behaves similarly. it is amazing what some accept nowadays. no, there is no excuse for anyone to be naked in my shower especially an employee of the complex who i'm supposed to trust! this is actually a crime!

 

 ROGER DODGER agree helpful negative off topic

2017-03-20 04:54 PM

If the tenant approved of the shower why did she call the police and say she caught the Apartment complex's Maintenance man in her shower naked? And yes "The only people I know who get offended by these calls are offenders themselves..." Yep totally true of course some say it's not true....Controlling people enjoy putting others down in a friendly manner..Guess all you want you don't know me.

So, Roger reports the scanner news. I can't imagine why someone thinks he has no right to express his opinion of a situation. I figure Roger is an Edhat community member and has the same rights all of us have to comment. Seems to me the crudest responses come from people who, unfortunately, are too poor to spend $1.00 a week to actually become paid community members.

@Rodger

Guess I touched a nerve.

The only people who are offended . . . that is an incorrect statement. Some people are offended when bias and opinion kicks in and portrayed as facts. You are correct. I do not know you, I just know what you write.

Flicka - a thicker wallet does not give anyone any more rights than those whose is thinner. That is an elitist attitude. He should report, not extrapolate and make false assumptions. Libel laws exist for a reason.

You touched no nerve everyone learns things in life and from what I have learned I believe that to be true from my own personal experiences....
