A Micoud man accused of stealing from a farm in the community sustained multiple injuries in an attack by his accusers, although the victim denied that he stole anything, reports say.
The incident occurred on Tuesday.
Sources told St Lucia Times that the victim of the attack disclosed that he had gone to his own farm.
But he said on his way back home, he had a bag of produce when he took a short cut through another individual’s holding.
However, despite denying that he had stolen the produce he had, he sustained multiple injuries when at least three people, including the owner of the holding attacked him.
An ambulance later transported the injured man to St Jude Hospital.
Police are understood to be investigating the matter.
