In the wake of a violent home invasion last Wednesday, a local fisherman and his family are pushing for justice.

Allegedly targeted by a group of nine men, Lester Michael and his three-year-old daughter, Lydia, suffered injuries, and their property was extensively damaged.

Lydia endured chest injuries from an assault with a truck oil filter, diagnosed as blunt trauma.

Michael, arriving later with his daughter and son, claimed recognition of the assailants who were ransacking their home.

Fortunately, his pregnant wife had left before the attack.

Using a flare gun and a fishing radio, Michael alerted the Coast Guard, leading to police involvement. However, the delayed police response allowed the assailants to persist in damaging the property.

He alleged that the reporting officer at the St John’s Police Station neglected to take his statement.
