Two female teenagers were charged for attacking and beating another female in Soufriere, in a video which was recorded and posted on social media.
Perclyn Joseph, 18, and Shaneika Andrew,19, were jointly charged on Thursday with assault and damage perpetrated on Abigail Lucien, 16, also of Soufriere.
Police Press Officer Zachary Hippolyte told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that the duo will make their first court appearance at the Second District Court on Friday.
SNO understands that the video link was sent to Head of the Southern Division Superintendent Moses James and the Soufriere Police Station, who carried out the investigation.
The victim was seen receiving kicks and punches allegedly by the two teenager. Throughout the video the young lady was seen trying to escape the duo as they continuously knocked her to the ground.
Running away and crying, the lady was surrounded by a crowd who stood by and watched as the assailants rained blows on her as she struggle to simply stand on her feet.
What started the confrontation is not yet known but reports are that the alleged accused were seen commenting on the video on social media in an effort to justify their actions.
