Cutlass attack at Victoria Hospital

There was pandemonium last night at Victoria Hospital as a cutlass wielding man entered the Casualty Department, reportedly to attack a male patient who had been rushed there after being wounded in a cutlass incident earlier at Marc.

According to information obtained by the Times, the assailant went into the hospital  at around 8 pm with a cutlass hidden under his shirt.

A source said the assailant and another man had arrived at the hospital in a vehicle that was driven by a male.

It is reported that the assailant proceeded to the Casualty Department where he attacked the patient who had earlier been wounded in the Marc incident, sending nurses and patients scurrying for their lives.

An eyewitness told the Times that the bloodied victim of the cutlass attack ran out of the Casualty Department with his attacker in hot pursuit.

According to the eyewitness, the victim sought refuge in the security booth, where a private security officer with a drawn firearm confronted the attacker and ordered him to throw down the cutlass, which he initially refused to do.

The eyewitness said a private citizen drew a taser gun to back up the officer, whereupon the assailant surrendered and complied when he was ordered to lie on the ground.

The police were summoned and are reported to have taken the assailant, his companion and the man who drove them to the hospital into custody.

The Times was informed that last night’s cutlass attack at the hospital appeared to be a continuation of the fracas that started earlier in Marc.

It is reported that the men involved all appeared to be in their twenties.

    What is this place coming to? Many who want to take out church and Christ from St.Lucia can now see the after effects of such actions

      Removing church is not the result of the country’s ills. The church is no longer a place of refuge. The church is now more political and corrupt than politicians. The youth no longer support anything spiritual.

    Immorality, Victimization, Corruption, Deception, Untruthful & Abuse, Characterizes this Sham of an Administration headed by Evil Chastanet. So what do you expect? Evil Chastanet refuses to Leave office even though he has found to be wanting in all of the above. You cannot RUN a country on lies, Evil Chastanet.
    Resign, and head to your homeland Martinique, so peace can prevail.
    You are the problem, Evil Chastanet.

Impacs is a By-product of what your administration did to Civilians (but as usual you defend Evil Chastanet), Lambirds is a Judicial Matter, Jufalli is the same a Gigoree (not sure if the spelling is correct) appointed by your UWP administration. You have no clue what Richemel is all about. Grynberg is a over and done with at no cost to SLU.

    Now that is unforgivable, have your row outside of the hospital, the people that have nothing to do with this have enough sorrows and problems to deal with to now be worrying about their safety, along with their health, something like that can send an already weak patient into a cardiac arrest and traumatize others.

    Sad but true is still campaigning on all radio talk shows and social. Chastanet is not the one sending people to commit crime. People like you are the ones dividing the country because you only see red. Politicians are not God, they are humans. Stop hitting the Prime Minister whenever the children you did not correct their wrong doings from small, turn into criminals. Stop blaming government for crime all you party HACKS ( both sides ) let’s show each other love and put your trust in God instead of politicians, you will not be disappointed. Have a good day everyone and lets continue to pray.

Blame poor parenting and absent fathers on the breakdown of our society. I feel sorry for those kids. They didn’t ask to be brought into this world and left to raise tthemselves.

Why wasn’t a report made to police to fix the situation …as if that’s gonna help…it’s too late by then and people are bound on taking revenge. those saying anything about church…it’s about relationship with God…you learn that when you are receptive to his teachings… people don’t wanna know…it’s all about them and not about what the future will bring if they do this …or take action using a weapon ….the choice is ours …and we can’t blame anyone else for it.

    Greetings, my take and observations…we live in a time,a world, that’s deteriorating morally and the spirit of love and compassion for the most seems none exsistant.
    The issue is as I see and feel, is a evil force that has inbede and encamp on and around the land, in the spirit, mind, and actions of most.
    In government, religious institutions, schools, individuals, there seems no escaping. The lack of morality, respect, integrity and love seems a thing of the past.
    It saddens the boggles the mind and all kinds of questions come to mind, seeking answers, but to no avail.
    We live in a time when evil dominates the direction the state of affairs go, all over the world, mankind for the most, we have / are losing our grip on moralit, respect, integrity, love and compassion.
    From those in the position to lead, teach, guide, to the least among, there is a evil that possess the actions and behavior, of the most and it’s sad and leaves one dumb founded, with no answers and unable to affect change, as being one, also not perfect, but taken aback at the level of evil…
    I look at the world over, as a blackman..
    Africa, I look at Haiti and I question what I see and hear, why is there so much suffering?
    I have had to swim and keep my head above the water, more so as I have aged, as the forces keep coming and it’s a fight, an everyday fight to stay positive, be positive. The negative forces seems intent to have me go/ do wrong, and thanks to my belief ( in the true and powerful word, the Bible, that have given me principles and ways that I should live my life, and works when truly adhere to, those forces don’t stand a chance).
    The worldly has blinded the eyes, things, money, material, position, greed, power,lust, etc have made man lost his/her moral bearings and has resulted in the sad state of affairs.
    We go about our daily lives like all is well, we go to work, school, or whatever we do, dress up in our fashion, bling, drive those wheels that have our sense of value contaminated, politicians dress in 3 piece suits brainwashing and tricking, religious institutions and their leaders, leading the masses to a dark hole, unaware….?
    I could go on and on, but who am I ? But to whomever may read my take, my advice, you need to swim your own course, and keep your head above the water, as the one swimming next to you,might pull you under…( no man is an island, but take cautions…the enemy/enemies stand right next to you.
    The lack of morals, integrity, the slackness that’s indulged in, with no care of consequence, the result, a downward spiral of positivity…the blind leading the blind.
    Shake off yourself my fellow brethren, one don’t have to follow, make positive choices, respect self and others, do the right thing.
    The beauty of my country, contaminated with the ugliness of immortality, the lack of respect, integrity and love.
    I lack diplomas, higher education, but experience and my belief in God and His Word, has made me wise, wise to understand the mess that mankind is in, and going to get worst.
    Food for thought, …( when you live like a sallop, act like one, you become one…)
    From the street university, ….dem follow, behave and want to be like others, the result…
    Don’t hate the messenger, check the message!
    I love my country, Africa, my people, mankind on whole, but wow…I and I in a mess, open your inner eyes…
    One love, and all the best…in a sad state of affairs, world wide.
    Mankind disrespect and disobedience to the Most High, the result of our situation and position.
    I know I am going to get beat down, but that’s my take, maybe, I reach one mind and bring hope.
    One love, peace.

    Unknown: To reply to this first and for most we must look at ways to solve this issues and not blame each other sometimes other people are invloved and may say things thats why we have to be careful. None of The Prime Ministers is not responsible for any crime however it is the governement duty to change some of the laws that they have put stiff penalities and hang their asses. How can criminals have more rights than persons in soociety? When the police is doing their job everyone saying he was a good boy and they killed him hmm. All thosee that thinking governement will do this and that only for thier people they are checking for. The bottom line is we are not safe anyway and stop blaming the youth so tired of it because those that doing the crime are mainly unemployed and wont work for 4o bucks a day but rather rob you. IF we have to move forward stop bringing politics in the picture. Sometimes you make complains to the same officers first they ask you where your evidence so what can the society do and when it haappen then they act. Some of us well in the soaps of the people and quick to move out so know what thehell can the society do? Try to help each other instead of blaming each other asses;;;;;;;;
