A woman who is believed to be in her late 40’s, was nearly raped this morning by an unknown man, who entered her home and held a knife to her throat.
Reports are that the an unidentified male entered the woman’s Marisule home at about 3 a.m. and attempted to rape her, sources told St. Lucia News Online (SNO).
A neighbour told SNO that he heard someone crying out but he wasn’t sure where it was coming from. He said upon inquiring, he saw a male running out of the yard and heard loud screams.
“He was bareback. I figured that he came from a neighbour’s house, because there are two other tenants in the yard. Upon going outside I realized that my neighbour was bleeding from her throat. She also had a cut on her finger,” he told SNO.
The man said the alleged victim explained to persons that the unidentified male held a knife to her throat, which caused her to sustain a cut to her neck.
According to him, the woman said she is not sure how her attacker was able to enter her home, stating that her doors were properly locked.
The alleged perpetrator also went away with some of the woman’s cash, which was taken from her bedroom.
The woman claims that she was not able to identify her attacker, because the place was dark.
She is said to be hospitalised.
When contacted, the police said they could not confirm whether they received a report of the incident.
