VIDEO: Police arrest two men in Castries mugging

 Share This On:

 

Two young males were arrested by police Tuesday morning in the island’s capital city, Castries, following a failed mugging, which happened in close proximity of the Parliament building.

Reports are that the men attempted to snatch a gold chain off the neck of a tourist, who fought back with the alleged bandits and drew the attention of some people in the area.

The men were taken in by city police officers and placed at the Central Police Station.

    • Whilst these police officers are having a ball at custody suites for being all heroic... I could bet right now there is another crime going on anywhere in St.Lucia ... They say that they are protecting the tourist .... What about we as Lucian on a whole ???? Smdh .... It doesn't matter what they come out in so walk around wiff a mask and be like hey everybody???? I wonder what would have been done if this was done by a white man / tourist

      (5)(3)
      • The Police can only work with support. OK. There is public support. What about technical support like duty-free entry of all kinds of surveillance equipment especially security cameras.
