Jamaica: Another set of sleeping, homeless persons attacked by criminals

The police have launched a probe following reports that another set of homeless people were attacked by criminals in the Corporate Area on Sunday night.

Reports are that the homeless individuals were attacked and beaten in their sleep.

The incidents come little over four months after three other homeless individuals were attacked and beaten to death in the Corporate Area.

The police said they have apprehended a suspect following the latest incidents.

Following the latest attacks, Kingston Mayor, Delroy Williams, has condemned the acts.

“I cannot but reiterate that it speaks to the awful state of affairs within the conscience of men, or perhaps it is a deranged serial attacker, but we already have a difficult task in managing to care for our brothers and sisters who have, for whatever reasons, met up on hard times and found themselves vulnerable and homeless,” stated Williams.
