ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Sea Cows Bay residents Gregory Alleyne Jr and Shaun H. Scatliffe made their fourth appearance in the Magistrate’s Court today, March 3, 2017.

In October of last year, the accused were charged jointly with robbery and assault causing actual bodily harm.

The victim had reported that around 2:30 PM on October 18, 2016 two assailants, one with a firearm, approached him while inside his parked vehicle outside The Sports Club in Pasea Estate.

One assailant proceeded to take the victim’s wrist watch, cellular and cash while the other struck him in his head causing injury. The victim was treated at Peebles Hospital and discharged.

Alleyne Jr was also charged with two counts of Possession of a Controlled Drug and on February 6, 2017 he was fined $4,800.00 to be paid by April 1, 2017.

In their appearance in the Magistrate’s Court on February 6, 2017 Magistrate Ayanna O. Baptiste DaBreo dropped the robbery charges against both of the men after the alleged victim gave the police false information.

However, the two accused were scheduled to return to court today to answer to the assault charge. The matter was adjourned until May 10, 2017 to allow the prosecution to have its case ready.
