Chef stabbed and robbed in Castries

stabbing3STAFF REPORT – A 56-year-old father of five is hoping for a safer New Year after he was stabbed and robbed on Friday night (Dec. 30) at a Castries city bus stop.

William Biscette, a chef, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that he was attacked by two young males while sitting at the Monchy bus stop, around 10:15 p.m.

“I was sitting down…. waiting for a bus when two guys passing behind me, hit me, pushed me in the back. I fell on the road and they started fighting me…. I put up a fight,” Biscette explained.

One of the thugs went through his pockets while the other, armed with a knife, stabbed at him, he said.

“When they stabbed me the first time I started calling for help but nobody was helping me… people were just standing around watching,” he said.

The bandits ran away in the direction of “the gardens” when a vehicle stopped, Biscette said.

The robbers took $600 cash and a cell phone. Biscette said prior to the attack, he went to pay a bill but the place was closed.

He sustained wounds to two fingers on his right hand,  as well as bruises to his head and shoulders.

The police are investigating.

Biscette told SNO this was the second time getting robbed in the city.

Last year, he was stabbed in the stomach and robbed of a cell phone while standing by the CDC apartments.

  1. These countless violent attacks reflect, the breakdown of the family and the spiritual decline of the nation where God is not the head of the home. Young people have succumbed to the influence of drugs, a community where restrictions on alcohol are non existent, a country whose leadership is lazy and lacks innovation, actively enables and benefits from criminal behaviour while turning a blind eye to corruption and other unsavoury behaviour. A population which is hell bent on tearing down each other instead of being each other's keeper, a people who rejoice in the demise of each other until the 'chickens come home to roost' at their doorstep. ( No one came to the assistance of the young man despite his cries for HELP).

    St. Lucia is an immoral society concerned only with partying and drunkenness, while the rug is wool is being pulled over their already sleep weary eyes. Gambling Dens (DSH) is DEVELOPMENT! and the slave mills of monopolized hotel chains which serve only the owner's interest and supermarket/malls run by barons with a "grab it all" attitude.

    Ye Our people love to have it so!!
    The patrimony of St. Lucians sold off for $1 while they dance naked on Mercury Beach. Their financial institutions sold off to those who have apparently more foresight than the materialistic weaklings at their helm.

    Good bye Fair Helene! Your people have sold themselves into slavery all over again.

  3. People keep focusing on having Police patrols etc.--which in itself is not a bad thing--but I think more attention should be paid to the perpetrators. There are many areas in and around the CDC where those guys hangout. A lot of those guys are seasoned robbers.

  4. I am sick of the crime in this country. The criminals feel entitled and happy living in a place where they can do as they please and get away or get a few days in prison. Are the authorities not hearing? Are the law makers not hearing? The country has only 170 000 people. Can it be that difficult to manage? We really have our priorities twisted.

  5. I hope he will not let that experience put him in anyway shape or format in a depression state. I hope that the police offices find thone sobs who think that this young man had to go out and work and they are they ones who needed to spent his hard earnings. It's a dam shame. All odds a sudden young lucian men don't want to work my gosh. I pray God give u a full recovery.ps please arm yourself with some reall acide. Them salops ain't worth nothing. Hopeless useless lazy bastards. Hope someone chop their dam hands off

  11. Chef man I think it's either you buy a car or arm yourself with a gun(illegal or not).Now if it's an illegal gun,shoot them mun when they are attempting to rob you and just tell police you were in a tussle with them & it's their gun & since you got hold of it during the fight you used it to defend yourself.But after you use it rub their hand all over the gun too eh,to have their fingerprints 🙂

    PS...& put gloves when loading the shots too...lmao
