Bandits attack Vigie resident

Vigie resident, Stephen Alphonse, has reported being attacked by two men in the Rodney Bay area.

“I came from Rodney Bay Mall doing my lil hustling – I was coming down; I had some groceries and a little change in my pocket,” he said.

According to Alphonse,  as he was awaiting transportation some distance away,  two men came out from the bushes and attacked him.

“They took my stuff, they took my change, they cut me and they gave me a cuff on my eye,” he told the Times.

Alphonse said the attack occurred shortly before 11 pm.

As a result of the incident on Saturday, September 17, Alphonse’s face was swollen but the swelling has since gone down.
