Same thing happened a couple of years ago with the USS Gonzolez. My friend was on the bridge. They trailed them for several hours without the pirates knowing they were there. As dawn broke, the destroyer sent a boarding party. The pirates fired on the boarding party. They peeled away and the Gonzalez opened up.

Last week, one pirate was killed and several others were detained after a private security team thwarted an attack against a Panamanian-flagged cargo ship, the MV Almezaan. A European Union naval force was called in to assist the vessel.
Sounds like a fun job.
