Police have launched a manhunt for a Rose Hall resident who allegedly slit the throat of a 1-year-old infant about an hour ago in the North Leeward town.

iWitness News was reliably informed that the suspect reportedly said that the baby and her father are demon possessed and must be killed to cleanse the village.

The suspect is said to have climbed through a window when the child’s mother was in the shower and slit her throat.

The baby was recovered and was rushed to a health facility, where she was pronounced dead.

iWitness News understands that the Rapid Response Unit of the Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines is leading the search for the suspect.

Police are said to be hoping to apprehend him before villagers do, as police fear vigilante justice in the case.

Homicide investigators from the Major Crime Unit have also been dispatched to the North Leeward community, iWitness News was reliably informed. 

Sources said that the child’s mother did not suffer any physical harm. Police are also trying to locate the child’s father so as to protect him from any potential harm from the baby’s alleged assailant.

  1. OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! What a horrible tragedy! It may be a wise idea for the Chief Commissioner of Police to get the Rapid Response Unit to go into Rose Hall and search out these cracked lunatics and search their homes for cocaine. Inquire of the villagers who may be suspected of using cocaine and other hard, illegal drugs. Drastic measures are needed before the situation gets much worse! LORD HAVE MERCY ON US!!!!!

  2. His throat should be slit as soon as they find him. Then crime rate will be reduced. He is the one demon possessed.

  3. This is not normal.That man who killed that child needs to be found and brought to justice. Bizarre! Praying for peace and comfort to descend on the village, this nation of ours. What an awful situation. May God have mercy on us.

  4. The incident in Rose Hall is indeed tragic and highlights the urgent need to address mental health issues, especially among young men. It is disheartening to see so many individuals suffering from mental illnesses and not receiving the help they need. While the Rapid Response Unit may not be the ultimate solution, it is crucial for the government to implement comprehensive measures to support and rehabilitate individuals with mental health challenges. This includes increasing access to mental health services, raising awareness, and promoting a compassionate and understanding society. Every effort should be made to prevent such heartbreaking incidents and ensure the safety and well-being of all citizens.

  5. ARISTON COLLIS. the police need to find the suppliers of these cracked lunatics, how these cracked lunatics can find the suppliers and the police can’t?? very scary.

  6. we can pray for him that the lord soften his heart to accept jesus. for all has sin and fall short of the the glory of God. we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, power and spiritual wicked. this is another scheme of the devil lest pray for him that he fine and accpet the lord, let us also pray for the family of the child that the lord comforts that and that he get them through this trying time. i know it natural response to want justice, but vengenace is my said the lord.
