A senior citizen was attacked by bandits in Bois Patat, Castries on Wednesday evening.
Reports are that the man was attacked by two armed bandits at about 10 p.m.
The bandits held the man at gunpoint and demanded his cellular phone, but destroyed it after realising that the phone was not what they wanted.
An eyewitness raised an alarm and the bandits fled the area. Some believe the firearm used during the attack may not have been loaded.
A similar incident occurred earlier in the week in Sans Souci, where a young man was attacked by two armed bandits and held at gunpoint. He was also robbed of his cell phone.
