(SNO) – A young man who was on Monday apprehended by residents after he attacked a family in Agard, Morne Du Don, Castries is back in police custody after he reportedly caused a disturbance at a city infant/primary school.
Details are sketchy at this time, but our newsroom has received three video clips, one of which shows several men, believed to be plain-clothes police officers, picking up the young man and placing him in the tray of pickup van.
In the other videos, his hands and feet are bound as he talks to other persons, believed to be teachers, at the school.
In one of the videos, it is being said that the young man attacked a female student by stepping on her hands and “threw her”. SEE TWO MORE VIDEOS BELOW
On Monday, Feb. 11, around 6:30 a.m., the same young man reportedly approached a man who had his eight-month-old baby in the car, and demanded that the man hand over his car and the baby. The man was then attacked when he refused. CLICK TO SEE ORIGINAL STORY
It was further reported that the man’s wife came to his aid, as well as other residents.
The culprit was then tied up and placed in the tray of a pick-up van and brought to the Wellness Centre, then to the police station.
In an exclusive interview, the wife told our newsroom that she did not press charges against the young man because it was clear he is of unsound mind. Despite this, police told her they will keep him in police custody as well as bring him for medical treatment.
However, according to sources, the young man was reportedly released from police custody sometime between last night and this morning.
He is now back in police custody after he allegedly attacked students at a school in Castries.
We will provide more information as it becomes available.
