The suspect gunman was severely beaten and stripped of his clothing.

Police are searching for two suspects in connection with the foiled armed robbery at a bar/shop in Girard, Cacao, Babonneau early Sunday morning in which an alleged bandit was disarmed and beaten by residents, according to Assistant Superindent Gregory Alexander of the Police Public Relations Department.

According to Alexander, the Babonneau Police Station was alerted about the incident around 1 a.m. on Sunday and officers proceeded to the scene where they apprehended one of the assailants.

Alexander said the officers observed that the suspect had bruises all over his body and he was transported to hospital.

Alexander said the suspect is currently in stable condition. He is expected to be charged following his release from hospital.

It is believed that the other two persons were in a car that transported the captured suspect to the business place. The car reportedly drove off after their alleged accomplice was caught.

A relative of the shop owner, who prefers to remain anonymous, told St. Lucia News Online that the business community has been suffering because of a number of armed robberies.

“We want the public to know because that is not the first time they are coming and rob people in the area,” she said. “Because we have a lady higher up the road, she has a shop. And the lady willing to close her shop because they robbed her once last year and two times for the year already, at gunpoint and with mask.”

Commenting on the incident, the relative added: “So he (the alleged gunman) came in, he burst a shot, and he ask them to ‘pass it’, he asked my uncle to ‘pass it’ so my uncle moved fast and think fast,” the relative explained. “So he tell him he don’t have money … he (the gunman) end up going on the other side where the fellas gambling, then my uncle rush outside and close the door and prevented him from going outside. And that’s how my uncle was able to take the gun from him and then they start giving him licks.”

By the time the suspect was handed over to the police, he was bleeding profusely and required immediate attention.

“The people in the area made him talk,” the relative noted.

  5. There seems to be a bigger problem. Having read one of the comments from someone who knows the guy, it appears as if this is out of character for him. Not sure of he is a deck deck as they say and vulnerable to this brazen act. Was he forced to do it? Is there a boss who capitalises on the vulnerable and weak just like you have a pimp for prostitutes, you have that sort of situation involving young men. The "victims" collect the loot and give it to the boses. We as a society really need to speak to our children. Crime has definitely taken a different dimension.

    • So its okay to 'burst a shot' in the air and demand for money? What if he had hurt someone? People like you that encouraging those 'fellas' to do those things with your Saloptay statement
      If you don't teach them a lesson they would never learn

  10. They should squeeze his balls to make him say who his accomplices are and secondly he shouldn't be alive today to live ttell the story on second thoughts they should pluck out his eye n cut off his right hand or both

    (22)(1)
  13. I hope the two will be apprehended soon. They also needs to be punished. The suspect is already in "stable" condition, then the beating was not as severe as I thought. This guy should never be able to commit any crime again!

    (10)(2)
    • I agree chop off both hands at the wrist! That's nonsense people working for their hard earned living and you busy pumping weights to handle firearm! Coward little pieces of shits!! They should squeeze his left balls out of place! Foleh!!

  17. He shouldve been killed as a warning to the others.Some one should have taken down the plates of the car & hopefully track it down & burn it,hopefully with the 2 escaped culprits inside.

    No mercy at all for these LAZY HOODLUMS who refuse to give honest hard working people a break.But I am still glad that the people of The community took action.wish it was recorded.

    (21)(5)
    • you said it right

      (3)(1)
    • Had it been recorded, miss criminal rights (Mary Francis) would use it as evidence to call for the conviction of the ppl who beat him. She would turn their right into their wrong. Good job, teach him a good lesson, no recording just his battered body & crushed ego. They must learn

    • you're a piece of ( you know what !!) ..That the sort of society you'd like you evil fool! Why not restrain and allow the law to take it's course, I hope they arrest those who beat the young man up.

      • I hope the next time he robs, it's you he does it too. I'm sure you'll be singing another tune when the 12 gauge is pointed at you!!

        (15)(2)
      • St. lucians are godless and ignorant people with no morals. No wonder their government treats them like mules and fools.... How could you people do this to someone? Why not call the police? These days lucians are bloodthirsty and passing their frustrations on those as poor as themselves, instead of holding those in high places accountable for acts of corruption. A nation of hypocrites!! Nigerians and Haitians act better than those in this land of fools!!

        • Take several chairs and sit your tail down! Why beat him they should have chopped his fingers off and one arm the whole arm!

      • wish it was you he had held up . you would not be singing this song right now. dumb ass

        (1)(0)
      • He is not as innocent as you think. He has previously robbed a woman and pull a knife on another person. So it looks to me that this is not new to him. The public were right to beat him and humiliate in public and social media. I sure he'll think twice before committing a crime again after what happened to him. ....and people...do the right thing and make a report I'm order for the police to arrest him and who ever was involved. We cannot have these criminals out on the streets
