Hospital Road resident, Leonard D’Auvergne, has reported being attacked by bandits as he walked near Constitution Park in Castries Friday night.
The 22 year disclosed that he was on his way home when the incident happened.
“Some guys tried to rob me,” D’Auvergne explained.
He said that while he was being attacked he fought back and received punches to the face from his assailants.
The victim said he could not recall how many persons were involved in the attack.
“They had a whole gang of them,” D’Auvergne stated.
He said he eventually ran away from the attackers who did not succeed in relieving him of any of his valuables and encountered some police officers who took him to the hospital.
However D’Auvergne said after he waited a long time and did not receive medical attention, he decided to leave the medical facility.
“The hospital is a waste of time,” he declared.
He said he was ‘pissed off’ as a result of the attack on him.
Lenroy D’Auvergne, the victim’s father, said he was very upset about the incident, adding that his son could have been killed.
The father expressed the hope that the police would be able to arrest the perpetrators.
