Ricardo Edwin accused of slapping lover who 'horned' him

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Ricardo Edwin, a 44 year old Virgin Islander, is to face trial in the Magistrate's Court for an alleged misdemeanour committed against his then girlfriend on June 28, 2015.

After pleading not guilty to the charges of common assault, criminal trespass and criminal damage, Edwin was given pre-trial liberty but not before honouring a $45,000 bail with one signed surety.

According to the facts relating to the charges, it is alleged that on the date in question, the virtual complainant, Anna Santana, was at her Belle Vue, Tortola home in the company of another man when at around 3:00am they heard a “disturbing” knocking on the door. Before the VC could have responded, it is alleged that the accused burst open the door, entered the home and called the VC a "damn dog" as he proceeded to slap her about the face.

The male friend, who was in the home, ‎intervened but the woman was allegedly forced to seek cover at a neighbour for the remainder of the night. The incident was reported to the police and the owner of the property. Investigations found that the louvres of a window and the front door were damaged.

On July 6, 2015 Edwin was met by police and informed of the allegations against him at which time he made no reply and subsequently denied.

Senior Magistrate Tamia N. Richards placed him on $45, 000 bail with one signed surety when he appeared before her on June 24, 2016 and maintained his innocence. He is to return to court on October 3, 2016 for trial.

    If you felt the need to find out if she was cheating I understand but why did you have to get physical? Yes, prove that there was someone else in her bed but keep your hands to yourself. Leave her alone to cheat on him next. The reality, once a cheater, always a cheater. It is only a matter of time.

      What is wrong with him is that he generally has an anger problem and those who know him personally will say the same. And it seems that most men feel once they are in a relationship with a woman, they own them smh

    Goodddddd, sorry but, he got what he deserved. Brother, Man to Man, next time stick to your own. As a man born and raise here, there is no way I, and I'm only speaking for myself will pick a outside woman over a hometown woman. I don't care if the outside woman shake her tail feather, or whatever she does to lure me into that scam, I am not falling into it. Come on my Island brothers, you all are getting lured and played. Then when the women show their true colors you all want to lay your hands on them.

    I have been to school with this individual and he had and still have a serious anger management problem. Whether you are a local or expatriate you will get cheated on. Men horn women all the time and when the tables are turned they can't deal with it. If she horn you all you do is either leave or suck it up because physical violence is not the answer nor will it solve your problem.
