A lone gunman robbed members of two Balata, Castries families on Friday morning shortly before 10.00 am.
One of the victims, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told St Lucia Times that the incident occurred at a two storey apartment building.
According to the victim, the gunman suddenly appeared from behind the house.
“He put a gun to my head, took my chain and my bangle,” he recalled.
The victim told St Lucia Times the gunman also took his mobile telephone.
“He told me ‘Go down the road before I shoot you’,” the victim said.
The victim told St Lucia Times he saw the gunman heading upstairs, so he shouted to alert a male individual who occupied the upstairs apartment.
According to the victim, the male that he alerted to the presence of the gunman managed to escape through a back door and raised an alarm for two female tenants who were in the downstairs apartment at the time.
But he said the intruder appeared downstairs, telling the young women that he would not hurt them.
“He took their laptop, he took money from them,” the victim disclosed.
He said he went to a neighbour to summon the police who arrived within ‘reasonable time’, but the gunman had already escaped.
The victim recalled that the gunman had a red bandana which was partially concealing his face.
Police are investigating the incident.
