Hospital Road resident attacked by bandits

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.

(Lenroy D’Auvergne)

The father expressed the hope that the police would be able to arrest the perpetrators.

        Y’all seem to have FORGOTTEN, CONVENIENTLY; that Chastanet said that Kenny Anthony didn’t make St Lucia safe, but he will! 41 murders and nothing from him! Countless attacks! And still NOTHING from him! So YES! IT HAS A LOT TO DO WITH HIS LACK OF ATTENTION OR POLICY DIRECTION ON CRIME!

        No, he is not but don’t forget he categorically stated during his campaign that he will stop crime in St. Lucia and even when the crime rate has been spiking not a word from him. So your literal response is rather a silly and moronic one.

      First of all my heart goes out to you young man I used to be a resident of Hospital road before I moved away and I know your family.

      Treba! For your information the whole world has a lot of crimes and it’s only going to get worse (get back to reading the King James Version Bible) If the big countries cannot stop crimes, how you expect the prime minister of Saint Lucia to be everywhere at one time, or to be able to stop it. It’s not only his problem, God will not blame him alone. It’s every citizen of the world, of Saint Lucia (That’s including you), of every country problem. If we all would turn to God then we wouldn’t have these problems. But we are so caught up in the good times, in pleasures and forget about God our creator, our redeemer, our defender; so there is what’s causing the problems.

        Are you slow? Google something called crime rate. Everywhere has crime yes, but no where near the rate of our island. You walk through castries after dark and you’re almost certain to be attacked. That’s not ok and yes our leaders are responsible! They’re paid to represent us and to put procedures in place to combat and deter crime. At the alarming rate of violent crime in st. Lucia the leaders have presented zero strategies! That is not acceptable, continuing as usual is not acceptable. Someone else could have been murdered for as little as bus fair and a cell phone but your response is to read a bible. Your bible will fix his eye that he couldnt receice medical attention for?

        That’s the issue. We continue accept mediocrity and think it is the norm. This country is so lawless and authorities keep letting too many things get away dismissing it as insignificant. Only a matter of time, not even police would be able to walk the streets.

        And guess what the mayor they will be having city officers working round the clock (24 hours a day) with traffic books to track down traffic offenders, so its all about money to feed the lifestyle of the rich. Take note. It is not about the safety of the poor, since the rich will not be walking the streets of Castries at night but driving their AUDI, BMW and the higher end vehicles.

You don’t hear calling for justice anymore now do we. I guess there isn’t any money or fame involve anymore. Smoke that.

      Absolutely wrong. Even nurses are treated that way as well. I can’t say for those working at vh but those working at other hospitals are treated the same as a regular person. There are even situations where outside nurses go to vh in uniform because they fell sick on duty and the vh nurses treat them like crap.

    The safety and security of all citizens and residents should be paramount. Criminal activity is so prevalent in St. Lucia because the perpetrators are confident that they would never be apprehended. This is an egregious indictment of the security forces and the government. There would be no relief for the beleaguered residents unless the government implements a feasible crime fighting plan, the security forces are highly trained, equipped and motivated, and citizens take an active stand against this scourge of unprecedented evil. Crime fighting is not being given the attention and the seriousness it deserves by the powers that be therefore attacks on the lives and properties of St. Lucians would continue incessantly.

    Those things have been going on for a long time now. We did not hv internet to put every thing on it. It’s not a now problem. My problem is the lack of police presence in key areas of the island. Example during Friday night activities in G Islet there are next to NO officers in the area. U see zobbies harassing tourists and they hv no one to run to for help. On a Friday night why are places like constitution park, jeremiad street not hv police presence. It’s time we get a commissioner who did not come through the ranks of mediocrity and can think outside the box.

    The political hacks and freeloaders from both parties, are always ready to attack writers who blame their governments for high crime rates. The fact is government is responsible for the security of its citizens. Anything short of controlling crime falls on government shoulders…they are being paid to manage. One of the silliest things I have heard, “don’t politicize crime.” It’s a fair topic as the country’s health or financial situation. The mere fact that politicians are afraid to bring up the topic shows their ineptness. Their hollowness and fright. In short, they can’t fix the problem so don’t lay it on the table.
    I wish the young guy well. Hope he recovers without too much psychological damage. Be safe young guy.

      I was unemployed for 6 years after graduating in 2008, watched dunces and certificate holders being given priority over associate degrees and degrees by the public service because of connections; even the valedictorian was snubbed. The Private Sector is similar in some cases as small businesses give priority to friends and families and dishonest/insecure human resource in larger companies tend to deny people who will threaten the job security of their friends ( a friend of mine fresh out of University experienced that). In most cases businesses won’t hire if the economy is bad.

      I have many friends who hold higher qualifications than myself languishing in minimum wage jobs while their student loans grow which is why I decided not to further despite my parents offering to take the loan. Living with broken dreams is hard but hey 200k in debt with little means to pay just makes it worse.

      Right now your girlfriend is competing with returning grads with higher qualifications who are willing to knock themselves down a notch or two, experienced workers of many years who have been put on the breadline, people like me who have been unemployed for many years, temps, foreigners and lets not forget to add the party hacks to this bouyon. If she has no connections she better start praying because only divine intervention works at this point.

    This is real talk.We all pay our taxes ,so I strongly believe our health care system is too poor. I hope the minister of health could look into to my comment and see the tears the Citizens of St Lucia and feel thy pain. I hope thy could be a better way which I now thy could be a better way to serve us right. There is too many reports of calls to emergency and there is no answer to the phone line .what is going on Lucians have no Hospital or the doctors and the nurses are just too lazy to assist the patients or thy short of staff. We need to come up with a solution and we need to do it fast because we need that help. I used to live in Toronto Canada yes I was illegal at the time ,I was in an accident and the doctors and the nurses treat me like a citizen and that’s what I call hospitality. The ministers of St Lucia should look into to that situation to treat as better than the way they talk ,this is Real Talk!

    I am surprised that this incident happened near the headquarters of the Castries Constituency Council’s City Constabulary headquarters. I thought the Mayor’s City Police would be on the beat in the vicinity of their offices to deter crime in their own backyard. Castries Central is dangerous at night with rats, zombies, thieves and thugs lurking in the darkness just waiting for an opportunity. Just saying.

    Young man I am indeed sorry that this happened on my watch. I was supposed to keep the politicians interested in the plight of the voter, however I had turned a blind eye to the plight of the general public and in doing so, forgot what was important to you. However, I would like to let you know that we are still working on a solution and as soon as the next four years we may be ready to implement a course of action. (Obviously when election comes around). In the meantime stay put and wait for us to do noting and say nothing. We will achieve triple the results of what we have already accomplished with regards to crime eradication (the square root of ‘zero’) and quadruple the increase by 2020. Thank you for your time and patience.

    It’s not any Prime Minister’s fault. Some young people in St Lucia do not pray, work but idle and smoke all day and then rob at nights. The government needs to build a place with a factory and sleeping rooms for the young. They will not have access to the world for 6months. Just work, pray and sleep. Mary Francis could teach them law and respect to others. Hopefully they might come out as better individuals.
