Lastic Hill family in fear after receiving death threats

Endless death threats have sent a Lastic Hill, Castries family into fear, as a group of men are hell-bent on making their lives a misery.

One frustrated family member, who asked not to be named, told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) today (July 9) that he is fearful that these threats can become a reality, if the police do not intervene.

The teenager related that the said men who are also from the same area, began harassing his family sometime late last year after he witnessed them breaking and entering a neighbour’s home.

He said after the police turned up at the scene, he related to them what he saw. The men were arrested and subsequently released.

Since then, the teen said the men have been hurling threats at him and his family.

However, the young man said everything was normal for a couple of months, until suddenly people’s homes were under attack again and some were even robbed in the area.

According to the source, the men have also become aggressive towards him and his family, to the point where no one feels safe anymore and are afraid that they could be harmed.

“I don’t even feel safe in my home. They threatened to kill me. They saw my mother and threatened her too and they pulled a cutlass and placed it on my sister’s neck and threatened her too,” he said.

The young man explained that the men even threatened to kidnap his two little brothers.

The 19-year-old told SNO that he went to the Central Police Station about three weeks ago when the incident first started and was asked to return the next day, which he did, to provide more details.

While the police have taken a full statement from the youth, they are yet to take action against the alleged perpetrators.

The family is asking that the relevant authorities investigate the issue.

  1. "If lastic Hill thugs kill someone then..." I do not believe what i am hearing. @ The Commentator, what are you saying that someone has to be killed first? So the life of this boy is not important? Is it that We will just watch him as another victim to be avenged by the police? This is utter NONSENSE, RUBBISH, FOOLISHNESS. Never to be tolerated within our midst.

    What has to happen is that all the suspected perpetrators rounded up, photographed and fingerprinted, If needs be DNA collected, given a stern warning and then released. A webcam installed in the area would be an added bonus. There can be some other measures that can be implemeted. This would be policing with intellegence and not with ignorance.

    By the way what happened to the Anti-Gang law that your PM passed for you? Ask him about it and how he can use it to combat such crime.

    You all vote for representation, the rep pass a law for you all claiming all kinds nice things about it, and you all have no idea what it is or what it supossed to do? Foolish people.

  3. Coming out of the controversial prime ministers speech on the extra judicial killings.It appears some officers may not be as they should be regarding dealing with crime and criminal elements since they may have an interest there.Reports of death threats from priviously convicted criminals against possible witnesses should be taken seriously.It is important for the force to encourage the publics respect and assistance in these situations, they owe it in a sense to the witnesses and public.On the other hand while it may not be the best advice.I think the family should take further steps to ensure their safety especially of the young ones.Gosh a cutlass was reportedly put to someones throat...thats terror your life could be lost so easily there. Criminals-calm yourself down the crap you do can follow you trust me.The same way you do it to them someone will do it to you and worst so drop all bad mind bring positivity be conscious fellas.

  5. Calling the police names will only make it worst for the family. The family will now be subjected to additional harassment, if not a force with an even more careless attitude. I am therefore appealing to the police to expedite their efforts to eliminate that threat, by whatever means necessary.
