ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Police are investigating two separate assaults where victims were treated for injuries.

In the first assault on Thursday afternoon, a 15-year-old male student received a stab wound to the face while on the Elmore Stoutt High School compound. Another male student was questioned in relation to the matter.

Two days later, the victim and two other males was questioned in relation to a reported fight at Duff’s Bottom. A camouflaged brass knuckle was handed over to the Police. Charges are likely to be laid in this matter.

In the second assault around 11:10pm Saturday night, a 47-year-old male who recently moved to Lower Estate was reportedly attacked by a group of young males as he was walking in the area of the Sunday Morning Well. He sustained an injury to the head and is still being treated at Peebles Hospital.

Police are asking persons who were in the area who may have witness the second assault to come forward. Persons should contact the RVIPF three-digit non-emergency number 311 if anything suspicious was seen or heard. Persons can also share information through the confidential Crimestoppers hotline number at 800-TIPS (8477) or any officer within the RVIPF.
