BREAKING NEWS: Pregnant woman still hospitalised; attacker out on bail

Twenty-three-year-old Dona Joseph, who was stabbed in Castries on Friday, August 8, remains at Victoria Hospital while her alleged attacker has been released on “self bail”.

Police Press Officer Aniel Innocent told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that 19-year-old Sanya Degazon of Ciceron, Castries was released from police custody on Sunday, August 10 after being charged for wounding.

Innocent explained: “You can be bailed by the court or by a police officer – what we call self bail. In legal terms it would read ‘bailed on her own recognizance.”

Meanwhile, Joseph told SNO today that she is surprised to hear that her attacker, who almost murdered her, is back on the street.

Police last told Joseph that her attacker would be taken to court on Monday, August 12.

“They never called me or tell anybody for me, nothing. I wonder if it’s me that do her that, if it will go so too?” she questioned.

Joseph, who is seven months pregnant, was stabbed during an argument between her and Degazon, her boyfriend’s baby mother.

Joseph told SNO that she is still in pain and that the doctors have started operating on her right hand where she sustained a deep stab wound. A second surgery is expected to take place sometime later this week.

“I have to go back for the surgery. I am still in pain but the baby is alright, they told me,” she added.

Joseph’s mother Albertina James had told SNO that multiple reports have been made to the police – as recent as the morning of the stabbing incident – about harassment from the attacker.

Eyewitnesses confirmed that the incident stemmed from an earlier argument/altercation between the two women. A few onlookers told SNO that the victim could have avoided the situation. Several persons allegedly advised her to ignore the woman but eyewitnesses said she was persistent.

However, Joseph told SNO in an exclusive interview that she grew tired of being harassed by Degazon, and in the heat of the moment, she responded to her, which resulted in an argument.

The pregnant woman said she is fed up with the situation and wants to see her attacker placed behind bars.

Joseph alleged that Degazon would go at her home with a cutlass and other objects and threaten to kill her.

  3. Its a sad day for both these women and most of all the children involved. Why? The initial "attacker" happens to be the one injured and crying fowl while kids are home with a "dead beat" father and hospitalized mother. The "attacker" on the other hand will now be seen as a monster based on all the lies of this current "victim". There are plenty of ways of avoiding altercation, but in no way possible will I allow someone to kill me before I try to defend myself. It is a sad sad day, when so many kids are now growing up with both mummy and daddy at bordelais!!! I hope justice is served for both of them, notice i said both because neither is innocent, except the unborn child...

  4. Many women feel like when they are pregnant they can't be touched.From the time I read the news on Friday the comments have been cconsistent... "Pregnant woman could have avoided this..." We need to love ourselves and our children more than we love these loser men... She JUST came from Social Services for him because he isn't supporting her financially but yet still she's pregnant with a third and having ghetto drama with his other baby momma... Choops tun...

  5. I cannot believe this pregnant woman has the audacity to claim that she was harassed when I was in town watching you follow your attacker and jabbing her with your phone in her face. I also watched people try to restrain you including your mother. If you were being harassed by your attacker, why didn't you go to the police before the incident. Whilst I am happy that your baby is fine, you really need to shut your ass.

    • I have to concur. she also left courthouse earlier to start a quarell. was at court myself. and plus later you say she continued to agitate the attacker. the Donna is too cancerous.now she keeps crying fowl.

      Sad thing is, normally women taunt men and cry fowl all the time too.#justsaying

  7. I won't pretend to understand legal matters BUT A: the attacker obviously walks with a weapon , that is an offense I believe (1) charge
    B: she caused greivouse harm (2nd) charge that's a felony
    C: wounding with intent (3rd) charge that too is a felony
    D: can even go as far as attempt murder , of course if the victim had died she most likely would be charged with manslaughter . Either way what she did was not a Misdemenor but a felony so that self bail is total crap and considering reports had been made before , not once . It shows some level of pre mediation on her part ..then again my country right or wrong is still my country !!

  8. so just wounding they didnt charge her for attempted murder also. mwe mem wow somebody tried to kill you and they are back on the streets so fast thats why there will always have crime and is the law abiding citizen that will do it cause that is shate they will just burst her ass or kill her if they get her. i dont think that is fair having her out what if she comes to finish the job at the hospital
