Guam – A group of kids has been allegedly causing a disturbance at the Agat Marina.

In an interview with Patti Arroyo on K57’s Mornings with Patti, boat-owner Ken Pier said the teenagers have been running down the Marina, jumping off and onto the boats, and recklessly biking up and down the dock activities.

These activities are not allowed on the Marina, according to Pier.

Pier said that after he confronted the group and one of its members biked down the dock, riding towards Pier and his wife.

“I knew the guy could swim. That thought went in my mind. This guy could swim, and I gave him a little push, and he ended up in the water. I thought, well I could keep him in the water, and he could climb out. And he climbed out of the water and went on a full ballistic attack on me, so I had to make sure Libby was behind me. I had to block all of his blows. I wasn’t trying to fight back. He was very belligerent,” Pier said.

As Pier tried to fend off the teenager, he said that he was punched in the shoulder blade and esophagus during the conflict. He eventually filed a report against the group.

However, he did not press charges as he wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt. Pier said that if another altercation were to occur, then he would take necessary action against the group.

Pier also said that he met with the Port Authority, who decided to have Port police present every night from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Pier expressed his desire for the Port to adopt more security measures to keep the Marina safe as incidents like this have been happening in broad daylight.
