Talk about Paradise Lost! The beautiful beaches of St. Lucia became the setting of unspeakable horrors for two British women, aged 24 and 31.
The women were on the island volunteering on a wildlife conservation project run by St. Lucia’s Ministry of Agriculture and a British run charity. The incident occurred on an isolated stretch of Grande Anse beach, in the north-east part of the country, around midnight on May 10th, when a gang of masked men attacked the two travelers. The women were camping in the remote location and returned to their campsite after a walk to find their belongings had been ransacked. They began packing their things to leave when the masked men surrounded them. The women had been armed with machetes, but were ordered to put them down. The group of men then proceeded to rape them repeatedly.
Superintendent Frances Henry, of the Royal St Lucia Police Force, said after the attack last week: ‘The victims, as you would imagine, were distraught but very helpful.
‘It was night, it was dark and it happened in a remote area. During the incident, they had the machetes and were told to put them down and one of the men took custody of the machetes.’
According to a police statement, rape charges have been filed against six men, locals who have yet to be named. The men are due in court later this month.
British high commissioner Karl Burrows described the attack as “a dreadful crime.” He advised tourists to use caution there as they might anywhere else, adding that crimes against tourists were not a widespread problem in St. Lucia.
WHAT THE HELL??? Masked men? These dudes are about to be put under the jail. Six “local men from St. Lucia” raping “British” women? These guys are about to learn the true meaning of “FAWK A Thug”.
