A Layou woman was, Friday night, charged with wounding in connection with the injury that Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves received to his head during a protest outside Parliament Thursday evening.

Annamay Lewis was denied station bail and would be held at a police station over the weekend.

She will be taken before the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on Monday to answer the charge.

Gonsalves, who turns 75 on Sunday, was injured when he was struck in the head with an object as he walked among protesters to Parliament around 5:15 p.m. on Thursday.

The prime minister was flown to Barbados Thursday night for further treatment.

In a Facebook post Friday afternoon, Gonsalves said he had suffered a concussion — a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or by a hit to the body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth.

He said he will have to be monitored over the next four to six weeks.

Earlier on Friday, Deputy Prime Minister Montgomery Daniel said that the prime minister would return to St. Vincent on Saturday.

  1. Something like that going on you don’t walk into thinking you are people person you sat down to eat with them they call you greedy because you were trying to show them you are down to earth when things like that are going on you don’t put your self in a position to get a bust head

  2. Really, Johnson Brown, if that is your real name. Be careful! The violence you wish on others may be visited upon you. My grandmother used to always say, “if you don’t have anything good to say, then say nothing.”

  3. How close was this woman that she was able to hit the prime minister with a stone. It doesn’t make sense that a woman of that size was able to hit the prime minister who was surrounded by security and dissapeared through the crowd so quickly. So many cameras around and no one was able to capture what happened. People wake up and use your head it doesn’t add up. Is this woman being made a scape goat ?

    Patricia,
    IF the court system in SVG stands to be fair and she has a fair trial, she should be acquitted IF there’s no one or nothing to identify her as the culprit who threw the object at the PM
    There MUST be evidence that prove beyond a reasonable doubt that she threw the rock.
    It is surprising to me though that with all the protesting and chaos happening in SVG that the PM’s protective services would allow him to get so close to an out of control crowd that can have easy access to the PM to cause him injury.
    Maybe it was one a dem self that did bus’ open he head !

  6. He had the be flown to Barbados for a burst head? So the health care in st Vincent ain’t good enough for him but it good for the people wow. Smh
