Yes I saw it on the news. Very sad! It reminded me of an incident that I witnessed many years ago. I was about to enter "Maharaj and Sons" jewellery store (which was located almost towards the end of Frederick street), when I heard someone screaming for help. When I turned around, I saw a woman helplessly looking at a homeless and mentally unstable man, who was trying to attack her with a bottle. What made this incident even more horrifying was, no one did anything to assist this poor lady! Not even the men! In fact people found this spectacle quite amusing! I was terrified at this point!
It doesn't surprise me that a young girl was stabbed by a violent and mentally ill man. The patients of St Anns are usually walking around Port of Spain and these homeless, mentally unstable persons are living on the streets and attacking people at random. This country has been plagued with this problem for many years and yet, nothing is being done about it.
