Can you help identify this rodent from St Lucia?

At dusk on the 5th Dec 2013 we were driving to our hotel near Soufriere, St Lucia when we came across a distressed/panting 'Rat like' mammal in the middle of the rough track to our hotel. We thought it may have fallen out of the overhanging foilage and was about to expire but after a few minutes it eventually made its way into the undergrowth.Superficially it looked like a Norwegian Brown Rat but its head was a very different shape from Brown and Black Rat.It was about 15cms/6inches in length from its nose to the base of its tail.  All help is appreciated in acertaining its identity.
