Bandits attack Babonneau couple

Bandits attacked a Babonneau couple at Paix Bouche, Babonneau, robbing them of a gold chain and mobile telephones.

According to information obtained by the Times, the man and his wife had driven to Plateau, Babonneau, to drop off a friend.

On their way back home,  at they realized that their vehicle had developed a brake problem.

The husband is reported to have checked and discovered that the brake fluid was very low.

The  Babonneau couple decided to park at the side of the road at Paix Bouche to  await the wife’s brother who had been called on for help.

While the man and his wife sat in the car waiting at about 2:am on Saturday morning, a young man is said to have approached and asked the couple if everything was okay.

The wife is reported to have become suspicious and proceeded to hide her mobile telephone under her husband’s driving seat.

After the couple assured the youngster, who was estimated to be in his twenties, that everything was fine and that they were waiting for someone to arrive, the young man  left.

It is estimated that about five minutes later, three men, two dressed in hoodies and one with a rag covering part of his face, approached from the back of the  parked vehicle.

One of the men opened the back door on the driver’s side and grabbed the husband’s gold chain, while another bandit held a gun to his head.

One of the men stationed himself near where the wife was seated opposite her husband.

The men, in addition to taking the husband’s gold chain, took his mobile telephone as well.

According to Times sources, one of the man demanded to know whether there were other mobile telephones in the vehicle, whereupon one of his accomplices whispered to him to shut up, since he could be identified through his voice.

The trio later made their escape.

    The hand of Chastanet is at work Mr. Lake is to close to Kenny and Hiliaire from his CIP position so the order was to transfer him.

    The show is on……. Russell for brother who is a professional has been affected by petty politics…..

    Mr. Lake is one the one few immigration specialist in St. Lucia and the police department.

    This is what John Compton did to Graham Louisy in the 1970’s….. Remove a professional agricultural specialist to administration….

    What we should learn from this is that social ills should not be politicised. There were things going on during SLPs reign. People spoke so much nonsense saying how it was because Alvina sold Babonneau to the Devil. Just to play on the thirst for superstition of the people. What are we saying now since Babonneau has been handed over to the prophet. We will get nowhere if we keep on doing this. We must find proper ways to deal with crime and suicide.
