UPDATE: Bus driver robbed and injured in Forestierre

A bus driver was robbed in Forestieree at about 5:00 this morning.

The driver has been identified as Phillip ‘Sonny’ John, 54, of Forestieree, who operates a minibus in that community.

St. Lucia News Online (SNO) was told by relatives that John was about to make his first trip when he was attacked by three armed bandits.

As he was about to enter his minibus in front of his yard, the bandits went up to him and demanded that he step out of the vehicle. He was then robbed of an undisclosed sum of cash, his cellular phone and the keys to his minibus and house.

According to reports, two of the bandits were armed with guns and one with a shotgun. During the robbery, the driver received injuries to his head. He was taken to the Victoria Hospital for treatment.

  6. I say bring back Capital Punishment,give the criminals something to look forward to. I disagree with the Police just shooting and killing people. Every body deserves a fair trial. But implement hanging,electric chair,etc. Make the criminals fink twice. And police enforce the law don't go about like u r the law.

  8. And you know... when the police put these guys down, we want to cry human rights, human rights. Human rights my ASS!!! The victim has NO rights in this country. You know, we St. Lucian people do not take this seriously enough. A man works hard for his bread, wake up early, sacrifice his sleep and leisure to take care of himself and his family and that's the reward??? Get injured, scarred for life whether physical or emotional and then these animals are caught and eat, bathe, shit for free at Bordelais. Capital punishment I say. Bring the noose or the electric chair back. See if some barbaric behaviour won't shake the animal out of them.

  9. Proud Lucian,

    Why do you have to be immature by calling someone a jackass because they made a VALID point, or stated their opinion which makes or made sense? I understand, yes at times, it's warranted, but when a VALID statement is made, why call someone names?

  10. Only an ignorant people will call for the Police to kill criminals. It would be more fitting to demand better policing.. After all we pay them a salary..

    • So better Policing would be to have Police outside everyone's door a 4am so ensure they are not robbed? What entitles someone else to rob me or anyone else? I work hard for my money, to support and provide for my family. I didn't work hard for a coward to ambush me and take my belongings. The Police can NOT prevent anyone from being or getting robbed, unless they, THE POLICE, are there as it's happening.

  13. bring back the black squad. let the police do their work, damn it and ask mary francis when she is going to start defending the rights of victims like these.........

  14. he should not chnage the locks. instead a few cops should make this house be their home for a period of time, let them come in and collect because it is theirs...then you shoot their ass dead and let Mary francis run her ass....that's what they deserve. If I were a cop, I would be happy to camp out and wait for the bastards.
