A man was viciously attacked and chopped by another man in New Town on Saturday afternoon.

What caused the incident is unknown but Dominica News Online understands it took place after a show at the Harlem Plaza.

A video of the incident shows the man who was chopped being chased from the Sukie’s Gas Station but was cornered and the other man attacking him with what appears to be a cutlass.

At one point in the video another man joined in attacking the victim.

At another point a man attempted to stop the attack, but it was to no avail.

This was witnessed by scores of screaming people.

A policeman eventually intervened.

The condition of the chopped man is unknown but Dominica News Online was told he suffered severe wounds.

DNO is unsure whether any arrests were made in the incident and the police will be contacted for information on the incident.

    When did our peaceful and friendly people become so barbaric?
    Not even a stray dog should be subjected to such a vicious attack.

    God, help our people whom it seems have strayed far from you.

    DNO, this is really awful. I did not watch your video/photos. What is your purpose for posting such graphic images on your website? It is reality, yes, but you have to be conscious that different types of people are looking at your site daily.

    How have we become such a savage people?

    Thuggery and greed runs amok in this dearland. Fish rots from the head. When violence is modelled as most effective means of getting one’s way, what choice does the man in the street have?

    This is horrible. What bad tempers; governed by the devil I suppose. They have no heart. Imagine chopping a man and another joined in to do likewise. It is as chopping a piece of wood. For God’s sake! This is a human being, a fellow man. What is wrong with these people? They are some bad people. The types Our Lord Jesus Christ said about Judas: “It would be better they were not born.” These people are a menace to society. What a waste of their life.
    My gosh! Again, what did the man do to deserve this? No charges yet? Why the wait? I hope the perpetrators are arrested and charged. With such a bad temper they should not receive bail. They do not deserve walking the streets of New Town, Roseau or anywhere else in Dominica.
    Some people are heartless. Imagine what they could do to someone else I would not want to meet them, see them and be near them.
    God protect his people in the future from such inhumane, vicious choppers.

      Those who hate others add/contribute to it. We must care for others and love them always, not when it suits us and our moods. God does not operate in this manner. He commanded us to love one another. He will not excuse us or exonerate us. It is high time such people comprehend this, pay heed to it and act upon it.
      i recognize that some people will have to be taught for, even as children to adulthood, they did not have the privilege of loving and caring parents. Some deviated from their parents’ nurturing.
      If they commit such crimes and are sentenced to prison, even there the authorities could try to rehabilitate them. Hopefully, they will respond to it.
