Police escorted the man, as requested, to collect his belongings.

Attempted abduction

Sometime after 9:00 pm; however, it is alledged the accused returned to the women's workplace, accosted her and attempted to force her into a vehicle.

The incident was witnessed by several persons on the scene at the time.

Up to press time, it's not known if the accused has been found by police.

      So it's his fault that she chose him? You women choose the bad guys, leave the good guys, then complain about the 'bad' guys. If that is hypocritical, i don't know what is.

      That is not love, that is obsession and being insecure. I made the same mistake and the only way this guy would leave me alone is my brother had to come from St. Thomas and put the barrel of a gun in the guy mouth and threaten to blow his brains out if he so much as look at me again. The guy see me in the street, he would go the other way.

    She is very careless to just start a relationship with him and allow him to move in. Ladies, please get to know a man before moving in together. People can be very nice and loving in the beginning of a relationship and then you start to see their nasty ways.

        It’s a shame how some women down grade and lower their standards just to say they have a man. No decent woman want to be with some dusty insecure man.

    Why on earth would she just meet a man and move him into her place? 2 months? He's a total stranger! He could be a murderer, rapist, pedophile, and now she sees he is a NUT JOB! If you people value your lives, leave those strangers where you met them, because they could kill you in your sleep.

      IS it the Spanish chick fault that the men are cheaters? Wives hold your husbands responsible of their actions and stop hating on other women who are also victims of the lie. The cheating will continue. Ladies please use care in picking a mate. It is not worth your life. i hope the police make an example out of him ridiculous.

    that's because the Spanish chicks know how to deal with their man and I mean when it comes to taking good care of them. Every Spanish woman is not the same. People here love to judge the Spanish woman as the same and also the Jamaicans . sorry to the wife that have to go through this.

    Most of the time these wives cant cook, can't keep a house clean, cant take proper care of the children. They just want to look good in public. So when them Spanish women show up and the man can compare and contrast, the decition is easy.

      If you believe that foolish story the man gives to you women about the wife, then this side chick epidemic will never ever end. The wives usually do everything: Cook, clean, take care of the children and turn somersaults in the bed. BUT the men greedy and feel that they can prey upon you gullible women. By the time the wives stop the cooking, cleaning etc, it is because she wants the dutty man to leave her the hell alone and go move in with you side chicks but they forever stay put just causing unnecessary stress until she gets fed up and moves on. For the life of me I can't understand why the need to cheat when you can be single and do as you damn well please.
