Teenage Male Stabbed, Young Female Assaulted In Castries


A seventeen-year-old male sustained stab wounds on Tuesday in Castries and a young female was assaulted in separate incidents believed linked to each other.

According to reports, the stabbing occurred on Chaussee Road.

The Saint Lucia Fire Service (SLFS) headquarters learned of the incident at about 5:05 p.m. but discovered that the seventeen-year-old had already been transported to the OKEU Hospital.

A short time later, a teenage female aboard a bus was assaulted and had to be transported via ambulance to the OKEU Hospital.

In recent times, Saint Lucia has witnessed a spate of violent clashes involving young people, blamed on the Trinidad and Tobago Sixx and Seven gang influence.

Earlier this month, the police recovered several offensive weapons from students.

Social media videos have also recently shown clashes on Chaussee Road, Castries, involving stone-throwing young men.

Police officers at the Central police station visited the scene twice but did not encounter the youngsters.

In addition, none of the parties involved made any report to the police.

  1. Some of the root reasons for this type of bellicose behavior towards one another is selfhate, perpetuate. Another is the food that is consumed, which is filled with GMO that are causing abnormality in our bodies. And yet another reason is a need to be notorious, a need to be popular, with no regards to consequences for actions taken.

  2. Crime in St.Lucia is Rampant in St.Lucia and Persons in Authority not Concern at all .This is Really Embarrassing

  3. I would like the crime rate to increase some more …. because authorities are unable to mapped out a solution, people who knows of the criminals are not reporting it. Once it get out of state control when UN will step in and weed out everyone, similar to what happening in Haiti. We had one government leaders spending tons of money and resources to fix another country problem while he is completely delinquent to fix his own. Read between the lines, allowing kids to get away with things will obviously expand to pure damages.

  4. But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him,on those whose hope in his unfailing love,to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine, but none of these we would want !

    The poor man called,and the LORD heard him ;he saved him from all his troubles..
    The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them..
    Come,my children,listen to me ;I will teach you the fear of the LORD..
    Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days, keep our tongue from 😈 evil and our lips from lies..
    Turn away from evil and do good ;and seek peace and pursue it..
    The eyes of the LORD are on the godly and his ears are attentive to their cry ; the face of the LORD is against those who do evil,to cut off the memory of them from the earth..
    The godly cry out,and the LORD hears them ; to delivers them from all their troubles,he protects all his bones,not one of them will be broken…

  5. Police can’t do they job jus arresting plenty shanty town guys an just charge them with murder stop doing those dirty wor

  6. In shanty town and vieux lots of people are smoking crack cocaine from the age of 7 ..

  7. Without the word,we are ‘unable’,to Stand, likewise a house that cannot stand..
