(St. Lucia News Online) — The victim of a brutal attack on Sunday in Green Mountain, Dennery that was caught on security video and went viral on social media is currently in stable condition at a hospital, according to his friend Dennery South Representative and Minister of Youth Development and Sports, Edmund Estephane. (See video below story)

Almond Cox, 47, was hit repeatedly on the head with concrete blocks by two male individuals in Estephane’s garage/residence where he apparently ran for refuge, based on the video footage. The incident occurred next to the minister’s parked pickup truck.

The motive for the attack is unknown.

Estephane told host Timothy Poleon on Real FM’s Newsspin that he visited Cox in the hospital on Monday.

“He is doing well,” Estephane said, adding that doctors believe Cox did not appear to have sustained major internal injuries.

In the interview with Poleon, the minister said he was at home when the attack occurred.

“Why did God hide me in some corner at my house away from all of that… maybe when I meet him he’ll tell me why,” he said.

Dennery fire service personnel responded to the incident at 3 p.m.

The two suspects remain at large, according to police sources.

  1. This is an appalling act of violence. I have not watched the video and do not wish to view a video showing this evil barbaric savage attack. I am sending my best wishes to the victim and his family and hope he has a speedy recovery. It does not matter what took place here, no one desires to be set upon in this way. This is a cowardice act by 2 men, shame on you both.
    I am against releasing of violent acts uploaded on a public platform. The only place this video belongs is at the police stations, so it can be investigated and the culprits can be charged with this crime.

    There are far too many violent videos from Lucians uploading horrible violent acts and the fascination with such videos being showed for the whole world to see. This also includes road accidents, cutlass attacks, enough.

    Why are you all so fascinated with watching violence against one and other? It's truly sickening.

  2. A bunch of grown men, cowards, you guys allowed these men to almost kill the man. Very sad. Whoever the person is had the time to record this, you could have reacted in a different way. I hope the people involved directly or indirectly are brought to justice.

  3. This is unbelievable if Estephane said he was hiding underneath the " bed" but will be a better proof if he would release the video from the front camera showing where Cox went to warn the 2 guys by the road and hit one of them as well,this story had more to it not only showing the video where they stonned him,common Mr Minister u can do better stop making the public believe what u showed them just happened for no reason there's always 2sides to a story and 2 videos to the story so u should also share the other video.
