Sales clerk chopped outside Point Fortin supermarket

A 27-year-old salesclerk from Cap-de-Ville is warded at hospital with multiple chop wounds to the body following an attack outside a supermarket last night.

Police reports state that the man was attacked around 7.30 pm outside Thrive Supermarket on Main Road, Point Fortin, where he was with his girlfriend.

The two were about to leave in their car, when a van pulled up behind, blocking the driver from reversing.

Two men got out of the van and approached the front passenger side where the man was seated and pulled him out of the car.

The suspects hit the man several times.

A third accomplice, who was armed with a cutlass, then chopped the victim several times.

The victim began to run but fell, and the man caught up with him and continued to chop him.

The attackers returned to the van, which drove off.

The girlfriend was unhurt.

The victim was taken to the Point Fortin Hospital with wounds to his upper back, the back of his head and his left forearm.
