BALSUM GHUT, Tortola, VI - An inmate of Her Majesty’s Prison has reportedly been stabbed. Reports reaching our news desk suggest that this morning, Monday, July 9, 2018, around 07:35 hours, inmate Mickhail Howe was stabbed by another prisoner at the Prison at Balsum Ghut, Tortola.

It is alleged that Mr. Howe, who was scheduled to attend court today, sustained three stab wounds from the attack. It is unclear as to what sort of weapon was used, however the injured prisoner was taken to Peebles Hospital.

In 2012, Howe was slapped with several charges of robbery, unlawful possession of a firearm with intent to endanger life, wounding with intent, and possession of explosives in relation to a Moneygram robbery.

He was subsequently acquitted.
However, in June 2018, he was charged for escaping lawful custody.
Prisons Officials did not immediately respond to inquiries about the stabbing incident. Virgin Islands News Online will provide updates on the incident as they unfold.

    Open comment: Anyone of us can go to prison for simple thing like parking ticket as only only crime we ever committed and end up doing life. I’d like people; young or old including myself to make the best choice. By 2020 a large majority of our young people will have a record; I hope I’m wrong and not calling anything on anyone future youths. I’d like the youths to know the only people and places who win are lawyers and graveyards. We don’t have to be perfect in order to make smarter choices.

    As for the dude in the picture - filter your circle. You’re friends who your sucking your teeth after are the ones who love you. The ones your not sucking your teeth after not could be the toxic in your life. Nevertheless ask God for grace and let him reach you. Let’s work together and try to steer off the other youths who’s planning on making the same errors of mistakes.
