Woman attacked at gunpoint in La Clery
Saint Lucia Police are on the hunt for a gunman who accosted a female employed in the education sector.
According to information disclosed to Loop News, an employee of the Early Childhood Development Centre in La Clery remains traumatized after she was held up by a male individual brandishing a firearm.
The incident occurred a few yards away from the Centre, which is located opposite the office of the Parliamentary Representative for Castries North, Stephenson King.
Loop News understands that employees at the Centre made several reports to the Ministry of Education expressing concern for their safety, demanding that something be done to provide some degree of comfort to employees,
a matter which they say has fallen on deaf ears.
Sources close to the victim say the woman put up a fight against her attacker who retreated in his failed attempt to rob her.
Investigations are ongoing.
