Kidnapping and Rape in Vieux Fort

Kidnapping and Rape in Vieux Fort

A kidnapping and rape has been reported in Vieux Fort.

Reliable sources have told the Times that the incident occurred on Wednesday of last week at about 10PM in the area of the Vieux Fort mall.

According to information, a male individual and his female companion were sitting in their vehicle when two armed men rushed up to them and forced the man to drive to Castries.

Once in the City, the man is reported to have been tied up and bundled into the trunk of the vehicle.

The vehicle was then driven to a secluded area where the woman was raped.

After the criminals made their escape, the woman is believed to have let her male companion out of the trunk of the vehicle.

They later made a report to the police.

Sources have indicated that the kidnapping and rape bear a striking resemblance to one recently in which a male employee of Courts Saint Lucia Limited and his female companion were ambushed at Bois Chadon.

The man, who was chopped several times about the body and tied to a tree, succumbed to his injuries.

However the woman, aside from sustaining some injuries, was not raped, it is reported.

Two men are reported to have committed the crime.

The frequency of armed attacks and sexual assault have struck fear into the hearts of many Saint Lucians and created a sense of outrage that criminals appear to be able to act with impunity.

Earlier this week a young woman was raped in the presence of her one year old child in the North of the Island.

The latest incident in Vieux Fort involving the kidnapping and rape came to the attention of the Times through a tip from a reader.

The incident has been confirmed by a very reliable source.

    Unless they don’t change the laws of Saint Lucia their will always have problems apon problems the criminals will always have thair way. No 1 they must fire the security Minister and put some one who will have the law change. The change in the law must have in it to beat these criminals when you find them do not put them in prison to eat tax payers money it is unfair to society. If they don’t have the catonine there’s enough Bull pistles in Saint Lucia that can be used to straighten these criminals. 12 lashes should introduce for crimes of these nature. Rape. Murder. Kidnapping. stealing. Chopping. Shooting .robbing at gunpoint. And if ever repeated. 24 lashes should introduce. And let them go. I can bet anyone that criminals would think twice before they act. THE LAW NEEDS TO CHANGE. To help our country.

      ACP Crime confirmed SUPT crime confirmed of the RSLPF what are you all doing as it relates to the Vulnerable Persons Unit which is the sole unit investigating reports of such. Word on the street is that the unit is in shambles as the well trained and knowledgeable in sexual offences investigation were kicked out, transferred, and replaced with persons of their interest (lol) who lacks the knowledge, skills and training The minister for police and the prime minister are not aware of this enquiry minds want to know!

    It is heartening to hear this is happening in my home country and what makes it worse is that instead of finding strategic ways of solving the problem at hand we are all playing or blaming politics. Wake up you idiots stop playing possum. Leave the political arena, the women need help and they need it now.

    JAY don’t you know in St. Lucia politics runs things.
    As for Mary Francis why the obsession on her. She does not work for government and is doing her job as a human rights lawyer. She is looking after cases like shakadan daniel killed in s police cell and today no final court hearing.

    The persons responsible for alleviating this crime thing are in government and the public service. It’s not Mary Francis.
