Early morning shoppers were sent scurrying for cover Friday as two cutlass wielding youths attacked a man and his girlfriend in Massy Stores Supermarket at La Clery, eyewitnesses have reported.
The supermarket has since been closed and staff sent home.

“The place inside was full of blood,” one eyewitness told St Lucia Times.
The injured were taken to hospital via ambulance.
