Police capture suspect in lawyer attack

Minister of Security Guy Mayers with Police Commissioner Vernon Francois.

St Lucians are singing the praises of the police this morning after they captured a man suspected of brutally attacking a local female lawyer at her home on Friday. Police say about 7:30pm, the lawyer, residing at Goodlands, was punched several times in her face by a known individual at Goodlands.  As a result she sustained multiple fractures and a broken jaw bone. Unofficial photos of the alleged suspect in the case had been circulating the social networks on the weekend.
Police have since arrested a young man in connection with this incident. Reports are that the young man shot at and injured one police officer during his arrest. The suspect was shot in the process. The police also reportedly during a search of the suspect’s apartment found an amount of marijuana. For more information see Wednesday’s STAR.
