St. Maarten – S.S.R. and B.A.B., who are visiting from France, were the victims of an attempted robbery at the Boardwalk on March 2. The couple says a trio of young men attacked them at approximately 8:00 p.m. near Sea Palace Hotel and fled the scene after an unsuccessful robbery.

One of the suspects used a sharp object, possibly a knife, to cut the strap of female victim’s shoulder bag. This attempt was unsuccessful as she held on to her bag.

One of the trio also stabbed the male victim in his chest with a sharp object. He was taken to the St. Maarten Medical Center for treatment of a wound that was not life threatening.

The police’s Special Robbery Unit is investigating.
