College boys attacked….again!

Two students of St Mary’s College  (SMC) were attacked and robbed yesterday afternoon, the second such incident this month.

SMC Principal, Rowan Seon told the Times that the incident occurred on the college field at about 4:20 pm.

He said two “hoodlums” grabbed the bags belonging to the two college boys and ran.

“We were able to chase them but they disappeared into the bush,” Seon explained.

He said the bags were later recovered, minus two mobile telephones that were in them.

Seon revealed that one of the SMC students was struck with a stone.

The injury sustained was not life threatening, he said.

According to the SMC Principal, one of the assailants was recognized and  a photo of him was obtained from Facebook.

Seon told the Times that the photo will be handed over to the police.

Last week  four students of SMC who were playing on the school compound were robbed of their mobile telephones and wallets by criminals who accosted them.

    Next we’ll hear of is students arming themselves to take on such attacks. Hmm and the school authorities will attempt to prevent and discipline students who they can’t protect while on their territory…. What then?

      The field is a ways off from the school compound. Usually used as a shortcut.

    UWP and its hacks would most certainly have blamed SLP If these crimes were happening under it’s (SLP) watch. But since its UWP in power then the criminality is made to look like an aberration and so not worth losing sleep over. It is not an aberration but is the government doing anything to address this scourge? I don’t think so!

    The direction UWP wants to take the country I think will open the doors to crime. If the Island is to draw the numbers
    Chastanet has in mind it will have raise its game and compete with countries like Jamaica with its hedonism. This jumping head first PM is intent on taking us straight down a precipice for right there with this cigarette paper thin economy is the acceleration in the breaking down of morals and values. The country will have to cater for the wins and fancies of the visitor who has money to spend. I am talking about prostitution, gambling and all other types adult self indulgences. Is that the price we have to pay for our economic survival?

    If you have the chance, leave St. Lucia and find a job in another country.
