San Pedranos Outraged After Ex Escapes with Fine for Wounding Beaten Partner

Russell Casimiro

Forty-year-old Russell Casimiro, a dive master from Boca del Rio, San Pedro Town, has pleaded guilty to a charge of wounding. But residents of the island are upset that he only apparently got off with a fine. According to American bar manager Carrie Tripodi, she was preparing for bed on Monday night around twelve-fifteen a.m. when she heard a knock on her door and the voice of Casimiro, demanding she open up. She refused. Police say Casimiro scaled up the side of the house and broke in from the balcony through an unlocked door and assaulted her, demanding his phone. Even after she gave it to him he repeatedly punched her to the face, causing a cut over her eye. According to an official Facebook post from the manager of the Sandbar Hostel, Casimiro was fined a thousand dollars which is due in July. The post also noted that Tripodi is under a three-month protection order. Businesses in San Pedro are asked directly to ensure that Casimiro cannot find work on the island, saying that “scum” like him should not be allowed to guide tourists or others.
