St. Maarten – An armed robber shot and wounded a man from St. Lucia during a failed robbery outside the Seaman’s club in Sucker Garden on Sunday shortly after midnight. The attacker fled after firing his shot without taking anything from his victim.

M.R. told police officers who were called to the scene that he was walking through the parking lot from the Seaman’s club to the El Capitan brothel when he was attacked by a man dressed in black with a hoody pulled over his head. The attacker pulled a gun and demanded that the man hand over all his money, threatening to use his weapon if he did not comply.

While the victim was about to hand over his money, his attacker struck him several times in the face with his gun, and then shot him in his left thigh.

The gunman fled without taking any money. Paramedics treated the victim on the scene. Detectives and forensic investigators are looking into the matter.
