BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI- A young man had a scare of his life when he was chased by a group of masked motor scooter riders on Monday, November 16, 2020, while in his home community of Baughers Bay, Tortola.

According to our information, the youth was heading out on his motor scooter to purchase food when he observed mask persons on another motorcycle following him.

The young man reportedly changed directions suddenly several times; however, he was unable to shake off the pursuing motor scooter.

Cornered & beaten

Realising his plight, the youth reportedly jumped off his motor scooter and attempted to run away but was cornered by several other masked men on motor scooters.

He was severely beaten and left bloodied.

The matter is said to have been reported to the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force and an investigation is allegedly in progress.

It was only on November 6, 2020, that a man was gunned down in Baughers Bay in broad daylight.

      This is just to much. Something is up with that ain’t nobody go chase somebody down and then give them a stomping for no reason. But guess what, whatever is going on a stomping is better than catching a bullet.

        Ever stop to thing someone who get a stomping might bring others to fight against whoever stomped them but may use a firearm...these people are influenced by the airwaves (TV, songs, etc.)

        We have too many people male and female who are influencers (in our community as well) who should not be guiding anyone with immoral ways.

      The sad thing is that the government and police are the ones who should be taking it serious,but it seem like they couldn't care less(I might be wrong). Scooter riders have been causing havoc in our community for quite a while now, but the government and police turned a blind eye. People have lost trust and respect for the law ...so, the criminals DO NOT fear the police.

        BVI is only yea big so whether you live in Baughers Bay or Cane Garden Bay it does not matter. If you did not trouble anyone then you can relax unless by some streak of bad luck you happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

      Children often end up in the "gangstathing" because of poor family structure and parenting in the home. The gang life fills that empty void so many young men feel in broken families.

      The scooter community and the predicted harborers of crime and those whose known culture is that of crime and their baby mommas and baby daddies are what is being used to make a new and degraded BVI. All for votes and pretend power. They have been emboldened and certified . Next ,they will be lining up for BVI land and house.

    These freaking scooter riders never wear masks. Now that they are up to no good, they're wearing masks to conceal who they are...Low down dirty bums.

    Recently a punk in Detroit (known for violence) was beefing with some people in a house with children inside.

    The punk went to his car got a gun and started shooting several times at the house. Thankfully, no-one was harmed physically.

    A neighbour taped it and reported it to the police. The neighbour was also interviewed by a news site without fear of being seen.


    TAKE BACK OUR COMMUNITIES. SPEAK UP!!!!

    GOVERNMENT INSTALL CAMERAS IN BAUGHERS BAY IMMEDIATELY AND CONTINUE TO OTHER COMMUNITIES.

        Is zone6 in Alanta itself or Macon? Right now Macon records atleast 3 killings per day., young black uneducated men and women who refused to go to school or get a job, social misfits and delinquents.
        BVI is not what it used to be anymore.

    I am not judging anyone children but i remember a few years ago my self and family went in town for street occasion and it had some youths around i can only assume they were high school kids and they were sitting on other people parked vehicles..one man just say how could do man you cannot sit on people vehicle like that. Well that you give the big man a cussing you could think it was the youth vehicle the way how he was cussing the man. Calling the man all kinds of name and even an i..ot. I dont know what caused them to do this to to the youth but he maybe do some5hing or know something.

    What in the world is happening with Baughers Bay all of a sudden? For all of the crimes that have taken place so far, you would think police would have some sort of daily presence in the area (as they should in other places too) What makes me even more concerned is that there are schools, daycares and a preschool in that community! I fear for the innocent children. Lord help us

    People here are two faced. Whe Claude Cline called for a ban or operational plans on scooters a lot of bitching and name calling was had. You reap what you sow.
