Two bandits, one of them armed with a gun, fled Friday afternoon after a businessman put up a fight when they attacked his business place on the Morne, police say.
According to a law enforcement official, the businessman was sitting in his establishment when the two males approached him.
One of the men jumped over the counter, snatching a bag and some cash, but a scuffle ensued between the second bandit and the victim, the official told St Lucia Times.
As a result, the individual who had snatched the bag and cash dropped the items and both bandits fled.
Police are investigating the incident which occurred about 1.40 pm.
There are no further details at this time.
