Police officers were called to put peace in the city of Castries at about 2 p.m. today.
Reports are that one of two men involved in a scuffle pulled out a cutlass from a backpack he was carrying.
However, police officers patrolling the very busy Jeremie Street, close to the Castries market, were on time to stop what could have been a fatal incident.
No arrest was made.
The officer confiscated the cutlass from the man who claimed that he was a landscaper.
