ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- An altercation between two persons at the Road Town Ferry Terminal yesterday afternoon, April 18, 2019 resulted in one of the persons suffering a broken wrist bone.

“A man was treated for a broken wrist bone yesterday afternoon at Peebles Hospital following an apparent altercation at the Road Town Ferry Terminal. No other details are available at this time,” Ms Drayton stated.

Word had reached our news room that one of the persons involved in the fight was stabbed; however, this could not be confirmed.

Police investigations are ongoing.

      A really unpleasant American tourist pushed two small children getting off the 9:30 Native Som ferry in JVD.
      I am not sure who he was - in his late 50s or probably 60’s and very aggressive - was also pushy in the immigration line at STT, and aggressive at the airport. Tried to square up to a tall white man at the airport but backed off when he realized the guy was bigger than him - think he is more used to pushing little kids around.
      If anybody knows who he is, he should be put onto the banned list for the BVI.

        Must have been you and your COWARD clan in the line. Any reasonable BLACK person with a spine would have put that man in the hospital fighting for his life for pushing 2 small local children. Feeding tube and the works.
