Bjorn Burke, Staff Reporter

Business came to a halt at a popular Corporate Area shopping establishment on Wednesday, after men, who are alleged to be homosexuals, reportedly attacked a male shopper following disparaging remarks directed at the group.

Reports from the Half-Way Tree police are that on June 2, at approximately 1:15 p.m., police personnel were called to the scene. Upon arrival, officers who caught the tail end of the fracas cautioned the rowdy quartet to leave the establishment immediately.

One of the men from the boisterous group was said to have had an altercation with a male shopper who passed critical remarks. As a result, the alleged homosexual reportedly hurried to an aisle of the supermarket, grabbing a knife off shelf, unsheathing it, later approaching the man wielding threats.

THE WEEKEND STAR understands that the group of men had been carrying on in unbecoming manner prior to the incident.

"Mi see dem. Female slippers, women's handbag, and one of dem was exposing him bottom area. They were picking up things like ladies stuff, like Stayfree and dem sort of something deh," said one man, as he recounted the incident. "This particular guy it seem to upset him. Him pass some remarks and dem hear, so dem decide fi attack him."

The debacle sent several horrified shoppers scampering.

Police told THE WEEKEND STAR that no charges have been laid against the men since they cooperated and left the enterprise, returning the knife used to threaten the male shopper.
