A Morne Du Don man was reportedly robbed and poisoned by masked bandits on Monday.

O’Brien Antoine, 44, was robbed of about $60 and poison was poured down his throat.

“Reports indicate that Antoine was accosted by two masked men who allegedly forced him to consume a poisonous substance,” according to a press statement from the Police Press Office.

The incident allegedly occurred on Monday, October 5, 2015, at about 8:00 a.m. on the Choc Beach, Castries.

He was taken to the hospital and succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday, a few hours after being poisoned.

Antoine, who is a plumber by profession, was stabbed and robbed by bandits last year.

He was hospitalized for a short period, but had recovered from his injuries.

The police said an investigation has been launched into this incident.

  8. Things are becoming more frightening day by day in our once peaceful and beautiful St.Lucia. This is indeed a horrendous crime. I am one of those who never support the death penalty, but now I have a change of heart. We need to send a stern message to the criminals. HANG THEM!

  14. You will, not doubt, eventually get your JUST REWARD.

    KARMA comes slowly but surely.

    RIP peace, young man.


  15. that is shate and when we hold them and burst their asses people like grace and the mary francises quick to give them idiots rights. no hard working law abiding citizen has to be treated in such a manner for their own belongings i feel so angry and sorry for this dude after you were robbed you were stabbed and given poison to drink awa


  16. These guys need to find and lock them up for the rest of their lives. Its not a laughing matter ,they are a treat to society they can do you, me ,that also.


  17. I have heard of Mafia horrific murders, but Lucians are right there with the Godfather - forcing POISON down someone's throat ? Sort Modee !


  18. And when the police do what they have to do, dumb #$%@ open their a$$ and talk crap. Operation Restore Confidence 2.0. F$#@ the US. But Kenny don't have the balls to take proper measures. He rather bring despair and ruin to all of St. Lucia than do what must be done. Labour - Soft on Crime.


  19. so for $60 a man lost his life..........really ?? this is beyond disgraceful. and then police will say if you catch the bandits don't beat them. when they killin people for $60 little dollars.


  20. This? Is what our country has come to? Killing a man so cruelly for 60 dollars? This is beyond tragic.

    I'm sorry but, I hope Jah deals with them in a matter befitting them.
