Three young men, one with a gaping face wound, were hospitalised following a chopping incident at the Guesneau Service Station in Ti Rocher, Castries Tuesday evening.

Lance Caldron, a pump attendant at the service station, sustained  a wound to his face and was scheduled to undergo surgery.

The two other males sustained lacerations.

An eyewitness told St. Lucia News Online in an exclusive interview that sometime between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., a young male arrived at the station and allegedly began to “disrespect” a female employee of the gas station.

“He’s just like that, troublesome. His tongue just dirty. He always troubles the female employee,” the source alleged.

It was at this time that Caldron allegedly intervened.

“Lance (Caldron) told him to ‘take it easy, stop cursing and disrespecting the lady’ because the fella had threatened to burn her house,” the source said.

Caldron’s response didn’t turn out too well. Soon, both men were reportedly in each other’s face, then it became physical.

“It was just a short tussle. Lance put the guy’s neck between his leg,” the eyewitness said.

The “tussle” was parted by the female employee of the gas station and the “troublesome fella” left the area allegedly hurling threats.

But it didn’t end there. Around 7 pm, the incident got out of control with a machete coming into play. Caldron was chopped during the incident and his brother, who reportedly came to his aid, was also injured.

The circumstances surrounding the second altercation that led to the serious injuries is not clear.

A third man was injured as well. All three were brought to hospital and treated for their injuries while Caldon was admitted for surgery.

St. Lucia News Online will provide more information as soon as it becomes available.

  1. @jadia fool you..I understand the point you are making,but parents should encourage their kids to be more ambitious.There are several places kids can go now to learn a skill and not be so idle.Government cannot be held totally responsible for such behaviours by these short tempered idiots......

  5. I'm not saying it's right what was done to him but he is not innocent. those in the community who turn a blind eye when he does things and blame the other party don't worry one day one day.

  6. That is not the first time this little prick has used a weapon to hurt someone who has done him no harm. His father hides him and he is never held responsible for his actions. He wants to be a Bad John. My late grandmother always said "Lalin kouwi e kouwi jou bawe li. I hope his father has a nice life insurance policy on him because God may have on pajamas but he is not asleep. I hope this young man has a speedy recovery and God will honor him for standing up to defend his coworker.

  7. We need to all remember that we're all human, and are capable of anything. Understanding is much deeper than knowledge. There are many people who know what happened, but very few who understand. The Family has to ensure that children are brought up with respect and manners not little child stating to each other that i will shot or kill you. This all streams from the various sources media and social activities which are available and accepted in our current society. Gone are the days of football and cricket, But Sex and Violence. We need to understand that the family is the number one foundation for the proper grow of a child but how could that be achieved when mother has to go overs to make a dollar and daddy has to hustle, or an of the current situations that the underprivileged has to endure. This adds stress and lack of Faith to their house hold, and lives no time for the children. No one is to be blamed but us all. A change is due but will only happen after we realize that we need God in our Lives and a lot more love for life.

    • No, not Police and Government. It's idiot PARENTS not raisng their child/children the God fearing way. Not every child who is disciplined while being raised will be a law abiding citizen, but it's a higher percentage that the disciplined ones will turn out to be better citizens than the non-disciplined ones.
