At the time of our interview, all that Public Relations Officer, Sgt. Stephenson Hector was able to say was that, “Yes I can confirm that there was in fact a kidnapping.”
Some unconfirmed reports though state that a husband and wife were held in their home and a demand was made for the husband to return to his place of work, (First Caribbean International Bank), to secure and return with an undisclosed sum of money, to obtain the release of his wife.
The bank in question is said to be the branch located at the Circus, in downtown Basseterre.
It is believed that the incident took place sometime on Thursday night, (27th October, 2011).
Though efforts are continuing by the security forces to resolve the matter, the public has been kept in the dark regarding the incident.
