The police in St. Maarten are investigating a bizarre case of crime which has left a baby dead in the middle of the public road on Tuesday night.
The matter reportedly involved a Dominican who, according to media reports, “went berserk.”
Reports are that the man, who DNO understands is originally from a West Coast village in Dominica, snatched the infant from its home in an area called Middle Region, swinging the child recklessly and ultimately slamming the baby on the road.
The infant died instantly.
Media reports indicate the man’s rage began in a nearby night club where he crashed into several parked cars while exiting the parking lot. His strange behavior continued while driving on the road when he damaged several cars, walls and fences. When his car stalled, he abandoned it and stormed into a nearby house where he saw the baby and grabbed it.
After slamming the baby on the road, the man escaped into nearby bushes where he was ambushed and captured by police.
