MAN DIES AFTER POISONOUS SUBSTANCE WAS POURED DOWN HIS THROAT
AMorne Du Don man, who was reportedly robbed and poisoned by masked bandits on Monday, has died.
O’Brien Antoine, 44, was said to have been robbed of a quantity of cash and a corrosive poisonous substance poured down his throat by his assailants. The incident allegedly occurred at about 8:00 a.m. on the Choc Beach, Castries.
Antoine was transported to the Victoria Hospital where he was admitted for treatment.
The victim, who lived at Black Stars, Morne du Don, passed away hours later the following day.
Antoine, who was a plumber by profession, survived an attack by bandits last year, after being stabbed and robbed.
Police have since launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Antoine, a press statement from the RSLPF says.
