Residents of Lluidas Vale in St Catherine are expressing shock and fear following an incident in which three masked gunmen reportedly kicked open the door to a house, tied up the male occupant, and inflicted wounds to his feet and face while they demanded money from him.
The crime unfolded a few hours before daybreak on Monday, May 20, in a section of the community known as Rectory.
Details of the crime are sketchy and the victim – a sound engineer for Exclusive and Fiba Power sound systems – is reportedly tight lipped about the incident because he fears for his life.
Residents said the incident apparently happened after the victim returned from a Sunday Sip party he had helped to promote. He also played a sound system at the said party.
It appears the gunmen thought he had Sunday Sip proceeds in his possession.
