October 16, 1957: Abduction & Sexual Assault by Aliens
There was a worldwide UFO flap during the 1950s and one of the strangest cases on record is the abduction of Antônio Vilas Boas (above), a 23-year-old Brazilian, that occurred Tuesday, October 15, 1957, on his family’s farm in São Francisco de Sales, Minas Gerais, in southeastern Brazil. This was the first widely-publicized modern-day UFO abduction, though there had been previous reports of extraterrestrial encounters.
Researcher Bruce Rux reported Boas was, “reluctant to tell his story,” but “was convinced by Dr. Olavo T. Fontes, Professor of Medicine at the National School of Medicine of Brazil and also an APRO representative, to publicly relate what happened.” Following his encounter, the young man suffered “pains throughout the body, nausea, headaches, loss of appetite, ceaselessly burning sensations in the eyes, cutaneous lesions at the slightest of light bruising,” etc. The lesions continued to appear “for months, looking like small reddish nodules, harder than the skin around them and protuberant, painful when touched, each with a small central orifice yielding a yellowish thin waterish discharge.” The skin near the lesions was “a hyperchromatic violet-tinged area.” Fontes diagnosed radiation sickness. Boas was also interrogated by military intelligence and subjected to numerous physical and psychological tests.
The actual abduction of Boas, who lived with his family on their farm, was preceded by a series of strange incidents that started at 11 p.m., Saturday, October 5, when he saw a bright white light in the sky when he opened his bedroom window. After sleeping a while, he awakened and the light was still there and as he watched, it seemed to be moving in his direction. Feeling uneasy, he closed the window and shutters, awakened his brother and the two watched as the light flashed through the shutters.
For some reason, Boas and his brother sometimes worked at night. Some researchers claim this was to avoid the heat of the day, but in the state of Minas Gerais, where the Boas farm was located, the temperature in October isn’t extremely hot. Nevertheless, the Boas brothers were working on the night of Monday, October 4, and between 9 and 10 p.m., both saw an extremely bright light, which they estimated to be around 300 feet above them and Boas decided to investigate. He later reported the light “suddenly darted away at tremendous speed to the opposite end of the field.” Again, he walked toward it and the strange object darted back to where it was when they first saw it. “The light kept still for a few moments longer in the distance,” Boas recalled. “Now and again it seemed to throw forth rays in all directions, the same as the setting sun, sparkling. Then it suddenly disappeared, as if it had been turned off. I am not quite sure if this is what actually happened, for I cannot remember if I kept looking in the same direction all the time. Maybe for a few seconds I glanced elsewhere so it may have lifted up and disappeared before I had the time to look back again.”
The night of the 15th, while working in the same location, Boas saw a reddish light that zoomed toward him at remarkable speed, “so quickly,” he said, “that it was on top of me before I could make up my mind what to do about it.” Around 1 a.m., the light stopped at what he estimated was about 160 feet above ground and shined so intensely he couldn’t see the headlights of his nearby tractor. At this point, according to Boas, it had the shape of “a large, elongated egg” with three legs extending from the underside as it settled in the field. Terrified, Boas ran for dear life, but when he reached his tractor, its lights had died. He was running toward the house when “a small figure in strange clothes” – he said the figures reached about to his shoulder – grabbed his arm. He shoved the thing away and found himself surrounded by “three more small figures” who lifted him off the ground by his arms.
Inside the Flying Saucer. Boas said all the extraterrestrials wore “a very tight-fitting siren-suit, made of soft, thick, unevenly striped gray material. This garment reached right up to their necks where it was joined to a kind of helmet made of a grey material that looked stiffer and was strengthened back at nose level. Their helmets hide everything except their eyes, which were protected by two round glasses, like the lenses in ordinary glasses. Through them,” he continued, “the men looked at me, and their eyes seemed to be much smaller than ours, though I believe that may have been the effect of the lenses. All of them had light-colored eyes that looked blue to me, but this I cannot vouch for. Above their eyes, those helmets looked so tall that they corresponded to what the double of the size of a normal head should be. Probably there was something else hidden under those helmets, placed on top of their heads, but nothing could be seen from the outside. Right on top, from the middle of their heads, there sprouted three round silvery metal tubes”– he wasn’t sure if the tubes were metal or rubber – “which were a little narrower than a common garden hose. The tubes, which were placed one in the middle and one on each side of their heads, were smooth and bent backward and downward, toward the back. There they fitted into their clothes; how I cannot say, but one went down the center, where the backbone is, and the other two, one on each side, fitted under the shoulders at about four inches from the armpits – nearly at the sides, where the back begins. I didn’t notice anything at all, no hump or lump to show where the tubes were attached, nor any box or contrivance hidden under their clothes.”
He continued: “Their sleeves were narrow and tight-fitting to the wrists where they were followed by thick five-fingered gloves of the same color, that must have somewhat hindered their movements. As to this, I noticed that the men weren’t able to double their fingers altogether, so as to touch the palms of their hands with the tips of their fingers. The difficulty did not prevent them from catching and holding me firmly, nor from deftly manipulating the rubber tubes for extracting my blood. Those overalls must have been a kind of uniform, for all the members of the crew wore a red badge the size of a pineapple slice on their chests, and sometimes it reflected a shiny light. Not a light of its own, but reflections such as those given by the rear lights of a car, when another car lights it up from behind. From this center badge there came a strip of silvery material which joined onto a broad tight-fitting claspless belt, the color of which I can’t remember. No pocket could be seen anywhere, and I don't remember seeing any buttons either. The trousers were also tight-fitting over the buttocks, thighs, and legs, as there was not a wrinkle nor a crease to be seen. There was no visible hem between the trousers and shoes, which were actually a continuation of the former, being part of the self-same garment. The soles of their shoes, were different from ours: They were thick, about two or three inches thick, and a little turned up in front, so that the tips looked like those described in the fairy tales of old, though the general appearance was that of common tennis shoes. From what I saw later, they must have fitted loosely, for they were larger than the feet they covered. In spite of this the men’s gait was free and easy, and their movements were swift indeed. Perhaps the closed siren-suit they wore did interfere slightly with their movements because they kept walking very stiffly. They were all about my height (5'4" in shoes), perhaps a little shorter because of those helmets, except for one of them, the one who had caught hold of me out there – this one did not even reach my chin. All seemed strong but not so strong that had I fought with one of them one at a time I should have been afraid of losing. I believe that in a free-for-all fight I could face any single one of them on an equal base.”
Boas resisted to the best of his ability as he was pulled up a flexible metallic rolling ladder into a hatchway, which closed behind them “so neatly,” he related, “that no seam was visible to the naked eye.” At this point, he found himself inside a small square room without furnishings, but brightly lit – “the same as broad daylight” – by recessed square lights in the smooth metallic walls. Suddenly a portion of the wall opened and he was taken into another room. “The only furnishings visible,” he remembered, “was an oddly-shaped table that stood at one side of the room surrounded by several backless swivel chairs. They were all made of the same white metal. The table as well as the stools were one-legged, narrowing toward the floor where they were either fixed to it or linked to a moveable ring held fast by three hinges jutting out on each side and riveted to that floor.”
His abductors grabbed and held him in place while communicating in voices that he said had “no resemblance whatever to human speech ... I can think of no attempt to describe those sounds, so different were they from anything I have ever heard before. ... Those sounds still make me shiver when I think of them! It isn't even possible for me to reproduce them ... my vocal organs are not made for it.” He compared their speech to animal grunts, “some ... longer, others shorter, sometimes containing several different sounds at the same time, at other times ending in a tremor.”
The creatures then proceeded to undress him, despite his protests. “They obviously couldn’t understand me,” he reasoned, “but they stopped and stared at me as if trying to make me understand that they were being polite. Besides, though they had to employ force, they never at any time hurt me badly and they did not even tear my clothes, with the exception of my shirt perhaps.” Once he was totally naked, they rubbed him all over with a thick clear odorless liquid; then he was guided to another room with red inscriptions over the door “like scribbles of a kind entirely unknown to us,” he explained. He was soon joined by two of the beings who were carrying instruments which they used to take blood from his chin, leaving small scars that were later noticed by doctors at the hospital. Curiously, the blood-taking caused nothing more than minor discomfort.
The Succubus. Boas said he was left alone on what seemed to be a foam rubber-type bed for about an hour. Grey smoke emanated from the wall, but quickly dissolved. Initially, he felt nauseated as though he was being suffocated and got up, hurried to a corner of the room and vomited, after which he was able to breathe more easily. After a while, a door opened and in walked a naked woman. According to Ralph Blum, “Vilas Boas speculated that the clear liquid was an aphrodisiac; to my mind the ‘logic’ of the story suggests that it was a germicide of some kind; and that the ‘smoke’ was a chemical that permitted the alien to breathe without her helmet – the remainder of the crew wore helmets throughout the encounter. It could be that the blood was relevant to some criteria of interbreeding.”
Boas recalled: “She came in slowly, unhurriedly, perhaps a little amused at the amazement she saw written on my face. I starred, open-mouthed ... she was beautiful, though of a different type of beauty compared with that of the women I have known. Her hair was blonde, nearly white – it was smooth, not very thick, with a part in the center and she had big blue eyes, rather longer than round, for they slanted outward, like those pencil-drawn girls made to look like Arabian princesses, that look as if they were slit ... except that they were natural; there was no makeup. Her nose was straight, not pointed, not turned-up, nor too big. The contour of her face was different, though, because she had very high, prominent cheekbones that made her face narrowed to a peak, so that all of a sudden it ended in a pointed chin, which gave the lower part of her face a very pointed look. Her lips were very thin, nearly invisible in fact. Her ears, which I only saw later, were small and did not seem different from ordinary ears. Her high cheekbones gave one the impression that there was a broken bone somewhere underneath, but as I discovered later, they were soft and fleshy to the touch, so they did not seem to made of bone. Her body was much more beautiful than any I had ever seen before. It was slim, and her breasts stood up high and well-separated. Her waistline was thin, her belly flat, her hips well-developed, and her thighs were large. Her feet were small, her hands long and narrow. Her fingers and nails were normal. She was much shorter than I am, her head only reached my shoulder ... Her skin was white and she was full of freckles on her arms. I didn't notice any perfume ... except for a natural female odor ... And another thing I noticed was the hair in her armpits was bright red, nearly the color of blood.” According to Bruce Rux, in a later recounting, Boas mentioned the woman’s pubic hair was also bright red.
He said the female alien came toward him “in silence, looking at me all the while as if she wanted something from me.” Once she pressed herself against him, he became aware of her intentions. “I began to get excited,” he admitted, “I ended up forgetting everything and held the woman close to me, corresponding to her favors with greater ones of my own.” Apparently, he had two sexual encounters with the extraterrestrial in which they engaged in a variety of acts for approximately an hour, after which she pulled away. “All they wanted [was] a good stallion to improve their stock,” Boas decided, adding that he enjoyed the encounter, though the woman refused to kiss. Instead, she bit his chin while making sounds similar to what Boas called “animal growls.” She never spoke and when the encounter ended, one of the other creatures entered and called out to the woman. “But before leaving,” he alleged, “she pointed to her belly and smilingly pointed to the sky – southward, I should say. Then she went away. I interpreted the signs as meaning to say that she intended to return and take me with her to wherever it was she lived.”
Boas remembered that once the female was gone, the creature returned his clothing and he was taken back to the room with the stools and table, where the crew sat and communicated with each other in their strange manner, ignoring him. He claimed he was no longer afraid “for I knew no harm would come to me.” At this time, he was able to take stock of his surroundings and noticed the walls were smooth, metal, hard and windowless. He saw a box with a glass top that had the appearance of an alarm clock and attempted to snatch it. But one of the aliens seized the object and shoved him. According to Jacques Vallee, Boas said the clock had one hand and several marks corresponding to the numerals 3, 6, 9 and 12 on a clock. But even though time passed, he never saw the hand move, an indication the thing was something other than a mechanism for telling time.
The creatures led him through the craft, showing him features which he described with remarkable detail. Later, he indicated there was no doubt in his mind that the ship was constructed of metal. Following the tour, one of the beings gestured for him to descend the ladder, pointed to itself and then toward the ground “and then in a southerly direction in the sky,” the same direction in which the female had pointed. He was signaled to step away. Then the ladder retracted, the spaceship rose and the tripods retracted so completely there was no sign of the opening from which they had emerged. As he watched, the craft rose to approximately 100 feet in the sky and grew increasingly brighter. “The buzz formed by the dislocation of air grew louder and the revolving saucer began to rotate at a terrific speed,” he recalled, “while the light turned to many shades of color, finally settling on a bright red. As this happened, the machine abruptly changed direction by turning unexpectedly and producing a larger noise, a kind of ‘shock.’ ... When this was over, the strange airship darted off suddenly like a bullet southward, holding itself slightly askew, at such a heady speed that it disappeared from sight in a few seconds.”
By this time, it was 5:30 the morning of October 16, 1957, and by his reckoning, he had been gone almost five hours – 4¾ hours by his estimation. When he returned to his tractor, he discovered the battery wires had been detached and realized the aliens knew how a tractor operates and disabled it so that he could not escape. For the following three months, Boas suffered mild ailments, primarily symptoms of radiation sickness listed above, and extreme sleepiness, a common factor in abduction cases.
Initially, Antônio Vilas Boas was described by UFOlogists as an uneducated peasant farmer, but, in fact, his family owned their farm, as well as a tractor and other farm equipment, an indication they were middle class. Boas himself was taking a correspondence course, something almost unheard of among very poor Brazilians at that time. Following his encounter and short-lived celebrity, he withdrew from public life to continue his studies, attained a law degree and practiced law in the city of Formosa, Gojas. He died in 1992 in the city of Ubera, in Brazil’s Triangulo Minero. Throughout his life, Boas never wavered in his account of what happened that October night in the field near his home.
