A first time visitor to Saint Lucia has been mugged in an attack involving three men in Castries.
Brigitte Glover had disembarked the Costa Magica cruise ship on Tuesday around 5.p.m., and was walking the streets of Castries, when she was attacked and robbed by three young men.
According to reports, the men dragged the German woman to the ground and ripped her bag off her shoulder, which contained her sunglasses, an umbrella and a camera.
Glover recalled that her mother who is accompanying her on the cruise, warned her against stepping off the cruise ship and heading into Castries, as she was afraid that she may get robbed.
The woman also said that moments earlier, persons on the cruise ship were informed that a male tourist on that same cruise ship had been attacked and robbed of a gold chain.
Nevertheless, she was determined to get a glimpse of the island’s capital city, and as she journeyed through the streets, she was confronted by the three male bandits.
One local resident witnessed the incident and attempted to intervene but was threatened by the men.
