The author lists some close encounters of the third kind in Venezuela for 1954, and notes that exactly two weeks before the Lorenzo Flores incident, two truck drivers in Caracas stumbled into a police station, torn bleeding, and terrified, and gasped out a story which might have been ignored by the police "had it not been for an exceptional witness." He indicates that Jose Ponce, a helper, and Gustavo Gonzales, who drove a panel truck in the early morning hours of November 28, were going to Petare some 15 miles away to pick up a load of food to be delivered in Caracas in time for the markets which opened about daylight. As the truck was in a street on the outskirts of Caracas, at about 02:00 a.m., the men found their way blocked by a glowing disc-shaped object of about ten feet in diameter and was hovering about six feet above the street. Gonzales stopped the truck and the two men sat there for a moment staring in amazement at the object. They then got out of the truck and walked closer to the object until about 25 feet from it. They then saw a very hairy dwarf-like man approach them. Gonzales grabbed this entity and lifted him off the ground, he later told police the creature weighed about 35 pounds. But the entity twisted out of the truck driver's grasp and gave him a shove that sent him sprawling backward. Ponce had had enough and turned to run for help at a police station that was only a couple of blocks away. Before Gonzales could stand up, the creature leaped several feet into the air and came for Gonzales, who noted that his attacker's eyes were glowing in the truck's headlights "like yellow cat's eyes." Gonzales managed to get up on one knee and took his knife out. When the entity came at him again, he noted that it had webbed extremities with claws about an inch long instead of hands. He tried to stab the entity in the shoulder but the blade slipped as if he had struck steel. Another being jumped out of the glowing craft and pointed a small shiny tube at Gonzales. It produced a brilliant beam of light that blinded Gonzales for a moment "and he thought he was gone... but when he could see again the object was rising above the trees and was quickly lost in the night." Gonzales ran for the police station and arrived a couple of minutes after Ponce. The police first thought Gonzales and Ponce were drunk or crazy, but a doctor was summoned, and determined that both men were in a state of shock and that neither of them had been drinking. Gonzales was treated for a long deep scratch down his left side and was placed under sedation. A well-known Caracas physician had witnessed the entire incident while had been on a night call and had been driving behind Gonzales when Gonzales came upon the object blocking the street. This doctor told the authorities that he had witnessed the fight, but had been reluctant to confirm their report for fear of ridicule. After being later assured that he would not be identified in the reports, the doctor made his statement to police. The APRO representative in Caracas was informed by press representatives that the doctor was subsequently invited to the United States for consultation with authorities here regarding the "little men" involved in the case.

It sounds like an amazing story. We can't debunk it or confirm it either way. We just have to go on the eye witness testimony of those involved.
Because it happened back in the day, people tend to believe it more for some reason. If this happened today, people would shout hoax straight way.
I'm not saying they didn't encounter something. I'm just saying we are taking their word for it that it happened. More than likely they got car jacked and beaten up by some teenagers.
