The Royal Saint Lucia Police Force (RSLPF) was expected to make a detailed statement later on the matter.

People pelted officers with bottles and other missiles when the cops showed up at a ‘carnival like’ after-curfew event at Baron’s drive on Sunday.

The Public Relations Officer of the Police Welfare Association (PWA), Stanislas Albert said the officers had to run for their lives.

The missile throwers damaged a police vehicle.

However, Albert disclosed that they did not hurt any officers.

An ultimatum given by Police Commissioner, Milton Desir, for the lawbreakers to surrender to the Soufriere police station expired Tuesday at noon.

Desir had warned at a news conference on Monday that the police would not tolerate what happened at Soufriere.

Shortly after he spoke, officers announced that they had arrested some 11 individuals.

They included the owner of the bar where the after-curfew event took place.

Police also confiscated the alcohol at the bar, noting that the proprietor did not have a liquor licence.
