Three males, believed to be from the Grass Street area, have been arrested in connection with the stabbing of an off-duty police officer in Castries this week.
According to a police release, on Tuesday, November 10, 2015, at about 3:45 p.m., Police Constable 856, Michael Henry of Pavee, Castries sustained a stab wound to the left shoulder by two men.
Police said the assailants attempted to grab his gold chain at the intersection of Coral and High-Street, Castries.
Henry was transported to the Victoria Hospital where he was treated and discharged.
Eyewitnesses say Henry was attacked by a gang of about six knife-wielding young men shortly after getting off a Pavee bus.
Henry, 22, was reportedly able to find a piece of wood to defend himself, knocking one of the attackers, who was later apprehended by police, and subsequently two others.
