Citizens arrest man who attacks visitor

Concerned citizens today arrested a man who attacked a visitor on Jeremie Street near the Castries market, according to an eyewitness report.

The eyewitness told the Times that the incident occurred at around noon.

It is reported that the female visitor was in the company of her husband when she was attacked by a man, said to be in his thirties, in an apparent robbery attempt.

According to the eyewitness, a local man who witnessed the incident intervened and grabbed hold of the attacker who managed to free himself and flee.

However, according to the eyewitness, other citizens gave chase and eventually held the attacker.

The eyewitness said he was part of the group that effected the arrest and eventually handed the attacker over to the police.

    Excellent news! We honest working law abiding , black folks need to catch and beat the “niggers” that give us all a bad name. His captors should have dragged (Words deleted) along the sidewalk back to the scene of the crime so he could return the goods and apologize to the victim. It’s time to be less dependent on the police, we got to start doing it for ourselves.

    BRAVO, BRAVO to those involved in the apprehension of the perpetrator.

    It is said that “Deeds Speak”.

    Their Deeds speak to the Courage, Morals, and Sense of Justice that is in the heart and soul of most St. Lucians.

    I do hope that these people are recognized in some way by the responsible Minister and promoted as an example of how we have had enough and will quash cowardly thugs the way we use to do it old-school.

    Again, BRAVO!

    I loved this article so much, that I came back to read it again a second day. Good honest people taking charge. We all must protect the hands that do and for the foreseeable future will feed us. Tourism is our future and must be protected literally at all costs. I’ll sleep better now.

    God answers prayers. Let us continue to offer sincere prayers for wisdom, knowledge and strength for our Prime Minister and leaders and God will show them how to lead.
    As we pray for them God will cause us to leave in peace, godliness and all honesty. 1st Timothy 2:2
    As we humble ourselves seek his face and turn from our wicked ways.
    He will hear, forgive and heal our land. 2 Chronicles 7: 14
    There is hope my people let us continue to pray
