Chopping victim, Oliver Willie, is crying out for justice after being attacked near the Castries market.
Willie, 35, who was released from hospital on Sunday, told the Times he was using a telephone booth when someone attacked him from behind.
“He chopped me on my head – when I try and run, he chopped me on my leg and when I fall down my fingers get chop,” he explained.
Willie said he also sustained injury to his eye.
The Castries resident said he could not recall anything else, but that he ended up at Victoria Hospital.
“I need justice – justice right through,” he declared.
Willie said he could think of no reason for the vicious attack.
He asserted that he had hefty medical bills to pay as a result of the injuries he sustained.
“I have to go back to the hospital on the 28th for my eye and next month – for my head to check my brain, because my skull cracked,” Willie told the Times.
He disclosed that the police have since held the alleged perpetrator who was positively identified by an eyewitness yesterday.
“They bring him to court today for bail, that is what I heard,” the chopping victim stated.
He said he was not sure whether what he heard was true.
Willie told the Times that he wanted his assailant to pay his medical bills, since he is not in a position to work anymore due to the injuries he sustained.
“I was supposed to get a security work the day after that happened to me – but right now I can’t work, I can’t do nothing for myself,” he declared.
He said he was in pain and suffering.
