Woman severely beaten by ex-partner

PHILIPSBURG, Sint Maarten — The Detective Department is presently investigating a case of ill-treatment of a female victim which took place on Sunday February 21st at approximately 08.00 in the vicinity of Marge’s Guest House in Cole Bay.

According to the victim she had broken off the relationship between herself and the suspect, her ex-partner, about two months ago. Her ex-partner who does not agree with this decision met her and severely beat her. As a result of the beating she suffered serious internal bleeding and had to be treated at the hospital.

During the incident two unknown men who were passing-by in a private vehicle saw what was going on, stopped the vehicle and went to the victims rescue. The two men pulled the victim away from the suspect and protected her from her ex-partner who jumped into his car and drove away.

The victim could not give much information about these two men because she was traumatized.

The investigating officers are requesting the two men who came to the rescue of this victim to immediately get in contact with the Detective Department by calling 54-22222 ext. 208. It is with the help of these two witnesses that this case will be solved
