During the islandwide power outage on Friday around 8:45 pm, 18-year-old Camryn Nixon was threatened and almost overpowered by boys who had appeared to be below the age of 12.
This took place at a girls’ home in Villa operated by her grandma and aunt. However, at the time of the outage, no one was home thus she took charge of the property.
She recalls the incident saying, ” I decided to sit by the front door because the place was extremely hot since no current was on, the a/c wasn’t on, the fan wasn’t on. I was by a girls’ home in Villa that my grandma and my aunt run. It’s by a Catholic church; it’s run by a Catholic facility so since my aunt wasn’t there, I was the one in charge.”
“Three boys came in the yard. I said: ‘What are you all looking for?’ They didn’t answer. They went around the house. I didn’t even bother to go and walk behind them because I didn’t know what they had,” Nixon said.
According to Camryn, when the boys came back around they threatened to stab her with scissors and asked about the contents of the home.
After she told them that there is nothing in the house, they started using obscene language telling her that they are going to have sex with her. At this point, nine other young boys appeared in her yard.
However, in the nick of time, electricity was restored and the lights came on causing the boys to flee.
She had managed to subdue one of the boys and interrogated him on camera. The boy’s father became aware of the situation and came to the house to talk with Camryn and his son. During the discussion, the other boys returned and were stoning the house.
Camryn appeals to parents to be more responsible for their children and whereabouts, she added, “They need to keep their kids under guidance and guide them down the right path because all of them are going down the wrong road and before they go in somebody else’s yard and get their life ended over foolishness and following bad company, it needs to stop”.

No doubt in my mind that these criminal ‘children’ are affiliated with CARICOM migrants who have moved to Antigua under lax CARICOM immigration rules. When are people in Antigua going to get wise about this huge emerging problem?
I used to support PM Browne but now I am thinking that a new political party should be established in Antigua that makes this immigration problem a central platform. We cannot continue to accept people from CARICOM countries. They have a different view about the rule of law compared to what Antigua is. I don’t like the UPP either, so that leaves only the option if creating a new political party that is pro-economy yet pro-smart immigration policy (advocates anti-CARICOM).
The only Antigua immigrants acceptable to me at this point are our new CIP citizens, at least they are usually rich, well educated, and don’t engage in violent physical crime in our nation.
I was a tourist in your country last week and it was sad to see the pandering to the tourists, expats, whom have access to the best properties and lands on the island. SAD!!!! You don’t think the rich commit crimes? Pathetic!! You blame immigrants from other CARICOM countries but you relish those that come from Europe. White washed much? I spent 7 days on your island and never once did I see or hear anything about slavery. All I heard about was Christopher Columbus and the great Admiral Nelson but I understand why, after all I mean your mouths are literally attached to the asses of tourists like sucker fish to extract their cash.
You are blaming this on immigrants. If parents don’t raise their kids right wether they are locals or immigrants they will behave in this manner. Without no structure they will always indulge in criminal activities or what ever else there is to do in a negative manner. Don’t blame the government for wayward children smh
Hmmmm something about this smells fishy (and I aint talking about the fish song)
The most enthusiastic political followers are usual the most ignorant. “Antiguan Trump” how did you come to this conclusion? Where there is no vision, the people shall perish…
I know 4 outta these 9 children and all of them are ANTIGUANS. Mother and father bring ANTIGUAN. Grandparents are ANTIGUANS. Probably their great grandparents weren’t ANTIGUANS. But not all immigrants are badly brought up. Know your place
