The ‘terror’ of St John

Date:

Share post:

WITH NIGHT COMES terror for residents in the neighbouring St John communities of Coach Hill and Haynes Hill.

An armed outpatient of the Psychiatric Hospital has been tormenting them to the point where some residents are afraid to leave their homes after dark.

According to residents their real life bogeyman – said to be in his 30s – prowls the streets under the cover of night, and has somehow continually managed to escape capture.

Within the past four months his torment has caused thousands of dollars in damage to properties and one man was injured by the public menace who has a liking for throwing rocks through the windows of cars and houses.

The several shops in the vicinity are also under siege by the armed bandit, who enters and shoplifts regularly while brandishing a cutlass. (RB)
