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 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.
