Armed robbers assault visiting cruisers in St Lucia
Published on March 10, 2016 Email To Friend    Print Version

SOUFRIERE, St Lucia -- On the evening of March 3, 2016, returning from dinner, on the Hummingbird Resort/Still dock at Soufriere, St Lucia, a party of six cruisers, accompanied by the Hummingbird security guard, was robbed by multiple masked attackers at gunpoint and machete.

According to Caribbean Safety and Security Net, the security guard was knocked down.

The robbers demanded money and were given wallets. One woman’s purse was cut off her shoulder with the machete. Her husband was struck on the head with the blunt side of the machete. A gun was aimed at them.

When the group came into the dock originally, they declined the dinghy watching “service” of some teenagers. The teens were quite unhappy about it and said they would be back.

It is not known if a report was made to authorities by the Hummingbird staff.
