Ninety year old and wife attacked by bandits

Raju Auguste and his wife, Olive, told the Times that they were inside their business place at La Clery, just a short distance away from the Seventh Day Adventist Church when the incident occurred.

According to the husband, they were watching the news when they observed a group of men passing the bar.

Raju Auguste told the Times he recalled telling his wife that the men were ‘vieux negs’ who were probably up to no good.

He told the Times that at around 9:05 pm, he saw some people coming into the business place – two of them in the lead.

“They asked me if I have any soft drink- I said ‘Yes, they have,’ the ninety year old La Clery resident said.

Auguste said he asked the person who inquired to identify which flavour was preferred, at which point one of the men attempted to jump over the shop counter to attack him.

The businessman said  although he had an ice pick in his possession, one of the men managed to cut him on the hand.

He told the Times that his wife started shouting and grabbed a cutlass to come to his defence, at which point one of the thugs managed to jump over the counter.

Auguste told the Times that the bandit who jumped over the counter tried to chop him but the cutlass fell from his hand, whereupon the and the others fled the scene.

The ninety year old said he has been operating his shop for over thirty years.

Auguste told the Times although the business place has been broken into, it was the first time that he has been attacked by criminals.

      I live in Georgia in the USA now. I used to walk from La Clery next to the field to St.Aloysius R.C. Boys School in Castries. Those were the days. Remove the title “Helen of the West Indies”, please. St.Lucian does not deserve it anymore.

    Sad to see since Evil Chastanet was allowed to rule this great land of ours by Blacks, even the Elderly is now getting heat. Evil Chastanet removed the Home-Care services Program for the Elderly. Sad! And now this.

    Why does some people want to blame what these young thugs do in society on politics and government..government do not make them do these evil things..these young people just don’t have no respect and sympathy for anybody whatsoever..what a shame..jail self is like a hotel to them.so they don’t care..capital punishment is the only solution right now..down with that human rights nonsense..and until one of these incidents don’t knock on Mary’s door..this will continue…

    There was a time when La Clery people had their own vigilante justice for criminals who came into their community. Remember what they did to Charles Cochon?
    Either La Clery fall or those are young bandits from La Clery.
