Nadia John sustained a stab wound to the chest.

Saint Lucia almost recorded another homicide.

A pregnant woman was stabbed in the chest by a “known male” in Marchand, Castries early Sunday morning, April 16, according to relatives and official sources.

Nadia John, 35, who is about six to seven month’s pregnant, is currently in serious but stable condition at Victoria Hospital.

The mother of five was allegedly stabbed by her younger sister’s ex-boyfriend around 1:56 a.m. Sunday during an entertainment event in the inner-city community.

Curlin John, one of Nadia’s sisters, said though she was not present when the incident occurred, she received information from her three sisters, including the injured one, who were present.

Curlin went on to explain that according to information received, her younger sister, Mervina John, who is about 21 years old, was at the bar liming with her two sisters when her ex-boyfriend approached her.

Mervina allegedly refused to entertain her ex and this led to a physical altercation which prompted the pregnant sister (Nadia) to intervene, Curlin told SNO.

“She (Nadia) went to put for her,” Curlin said.

It was during this time that Nadia allegedly sustained the stab wound. Curlin said a female friend “ran home” and informed her about the incident as soon as it happened.

Nadia’s baby is not in any danger, Curlin told SNO.

“She (her sister) is doing ok but she is still at VH (Victoria Hospital),” Curlin added.

A police source confirmed that Nadia was stabbed during a physical altercation with a “known male” who is still at large.

The source said the suspect was in a relationship with one of the persons involved in the dispute that occurred near a bar in the community, but could not provide additional details at this time.

  17. I saw the incident , what I saw is the two sisters running after the guy attacking him in front of dax supermarket. I can't say if there was some problem which led to the incident but when I saw the three they were in an argument and he was walking away from them, then pregnant one had a long weapon which looks a a fork. They were hitting him and so on, making him look like a Hilary, so he ran across the road and grabbed a box cutter knife from a friend and came after them , he saw the pregnant one first so he stabbed/ slashed her. Then ran up marchand, and a crowd was following. What I am saying is that you are pregnant, this is not your case, seek police assistant if he is harassing y'all. You don't go about attacking him. I wish her a speedy recovery though.

  18. I believe the first sentence is silly. "ST Lucia almost recorded another homicide" What or when is it almost another homicide? We always have stabbing the does result in death.

  23. st lucians. are quick to correct with every thing but we need to correct our selves first before we can do it to others

  24. Vitalis pay attention to the details. It stated that "st lucia almost recorded another homicide". It does not state that there was another homicide.

    (3)(3)
    • Sorry, Tara, I read the report fresh from the horse's mouth - just published. To my knowledge & sighting, "almost" was not there. Since this is an on=line report, it could be easily altered and I would like to actually like to examine the Template & Motherboard of your computer before I accept that I was wrong. How far do you want to go to prove that your original report was not accurate?

      (1)(1)
  25. I'm happy she is ok but there are a few questions which i would like to ask.
    1. What is a 7 month pregnant woman doing out at minutes two in the morning?
    2. Where were her other five kids, who was looking after them?
    Situations like these trouble me because the highlight the little ways society is breaking down.

    (33)(1)
  26. Attempted murder lock the bastwred up and throw Away the keys! Another criminal walking amongst us!!

    (20)(13)
  27. tip my hat to the staff of vh

  28. S.N.O, how could this be another recorded homicide if the victim is in a stable condition St V. H.?
