Police say they arrested two men Saturday in connection with a recent fatal attack on a resident of Dennery.
And the law enforcers say they are actively pursuing a third male.
One law enforcement official told St Lucia Times that investigators expect to lay charges soon.
According to eyewitnesses, three men beat up Ronald Lesporis, aka ‘Coolie’ on Friday, March 19, 2021.
But Dennery police said they only received a report about the incident some two days later and immediately began investigations.
The eyewitnesses said the three known individuals attacked Lesfloris on the road at Praslin, after a verbal exchange.
They reported that after the 64 year old fell unconscious, the assailants left the scene.
As a result, people who witnessed the attack called an ambulance which transported the victim to hospital.
However Lesporis, who sustained severe head and body injuries, succumbed on Saturday.
