Gangsters raid Castries residence, rob occupants of 50 cents, laptops, jewelry
Gangsters (not those involved in the incident)

Four males brandishing a shotgun and cutlass raided a New Village, Castries residence last night, Nov. 16 about 9:30 and robbed the occupants, including children.

The gangsters fired a shot at the victims as they fled.

No one was injured but two children, no older than nine years old, were left traumatized.

According to a resident, 50 cents was taken from one of the children.

“His mother said he peed on him and the other brother eased his bowels. He had to hold his poop in his hands,” a resident said.

Two government-issued laptops, along with an undisclosed amount of money, cell phones and jewelry were taken by the robbers.

“Everyone who was outside in the yard got robbed and when they were done they fired a shot in the people’s direction,” a resident said. “It hurts. It’s like I am seeing my child at that age going through that. Those guys are too serious.”

According to residents, three of the robbers partially covered their faces with rags. The other was unmasked.

No one has been arrested.

  1. PPl I plead with you that CRIME is not on the rise...Our deputy says $5 can feed a family so what are we worried about?...Life is at it's best in St.Lucia & Crime is non existent because we focus on getting drugs instead of actually solving anything.

  3. Broke people doing bad things. Where are the promised jobs. They say make your own jobs with nothing. They say look overseas where the economic problems are the same.

  4. Even though no one was injured, firing a shot at the victims after the robbery is a dangerous sign.
    These guys need to be charged with attempted murder, not just robbery and given a very harsh sentence when caught or they will become much more violent in the future.

  7. “His mother said he peed on him and the other brother eased his bowels. He had to hold his poop in his hands,” a resident said. This wasn't necessary. Just adding sensationalism to the story and turning it from a serious issue to more of a joke.
