A 20-year-old Vieux Fort man underwent emergency surgery Tuesday morning (Jan.3) after he was stabbed at a popular beach bar/night club, just outside the town, relatives have disclosed.

McGelan Joseph of Lewis Street, Vieux Fort is currently in serious but stable condition at St. Jude Hospital, relatives say.

Mina Joseph told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that her brother was attacked by two known males while dancing on the stage inside Coastline, Sandy Beach. The incident occurred after 2 a.m.

Mina said based on the reports she gathered, her brother had no problems with the perpetrators. She believed he was attacked because of whom he was associated with.

She said her brother was at the club with friends who had a history with the attackers.

She went on to say that the stab wounds to her brother’s intestine caused internal bleeding, but the four-hour surgery was successful.

At least one person have been arrested, she said.

  1. I have always wondered why no activity initiated in Vieux-Fort ever lasts.
    Vieux Fort is a place with immense potential but with a lot of intelligent youngsters with zero ambition and who are simply followers.
    Look at Laborie how it is so different. Boils down to the mentality of the people. Laborians generally make things happen while Vieux-Fortians sit and blame everyone else. The young people in Vieux-Fort. No matter how DSH or DHS or whatever they bring to your constituency if the youngsters continue in this manner then no one will want to attend activities in our beautiful town

    • We need more guys like you speaking out. Only then can we clean the streets. The authorities should recognise that the voices of those men in the center of the criminal village need to be heard when putting together crime fighting strategies. Engage them please...


  4. Is this a message to the priest and JJ who want to stop the DSH using the Sandy Beach (Coastline) with no evidence? Maybe it should have happened at the THE REEF to make them know that these young men are unemployed and the victim was a horseman.


  5. Young men, you'll killing the population when you'll kill each other, then there is no males left to continue the generation.please stop it each other.
