A man in his early 20’s was stabbed while in a bus heading to Micoud North, for the Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) political rally held on Sunday.
Reports are that a man, identified as Imbert (only name given), attacked a man by the name of Marcus, when the bus filled with SLP supporters got to Dernière Rivière, Dennery, but Marcus retaliated by stabbing Imbert.
“SSU turned the bus back to Faux a Chaud, and it never made it to the meeting. The fighting continued among them after the bus dropped them off,” a source told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) on Monday.
The Richfond Police Station confirmed receiving the report, but could not provide any details regarding the incident, as the investigating officer is currently off-duty.
An opposition United Workers Party (UWP) official told SNO: “They also tried to engage us all the way down, but we have warned our people to remain focused. They also blocked the road.”
The injured man spent the night at hospital and was released around 11:00 a.m. (Monday).
