Chopping victim recounts night of terror

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.

“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.

“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.

    Unbelievable! making a simple phone call and you get the “chop”?
    The chopper must be a monkey just freshly climbing down out of the trees. Makes zero sense. Castries, you a dangerous place. Too many baboon’s running amok. We desperately need more police shootings! Help keep crazy chimps in check.
