ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- A man from Virgin Gorda has been charged for assaulting a woman who he deemed a trouble maker who was feeding lies to his girlfriend.

Leon Forbes was charged with Common Assault for the offence, which allegedly occurred on September 21, 2018.

He pleaded not guilty, and the trial started at the Magistrate’s Court on Monday, September 23, 2019.

'It wasn’t me'

When the Crown called its first witness, the Virtual Complainant (VC), she testified that she was in fear for her life when the assault allegedly occurred.

Recounting the assault, the VC said she was walking in the vicinity of Speedy’s in the Valley on Virgin Gorda when she was struck from behind with a scooter being ridden by Forbes at the time.

After hitting her, Forbes reportedly said, “Why all you messaging my girl with all kinds of things and all you know nothing no go so?”

It was then that she allegedly told him that he had the wrong person as she did not speak to his girlfriend, but one of her cousins did.

“I must kill one of ayo,” he then allegedly told her before riding off.

The VC continued that, following the encounter, Forbes and a friend returned, and he continued his attack on her.

She said Forbes started shouting at her and he got off his scooter and held her by her neck against a nearby wall.

It was then that Forbes reportedly said she liked ‘messing’ with the relationship of other people.

Following the incident, the VC made a report to the Virgin Gorda Police Station and Forbes was arrested and charged.

An abrasion on her neck and white paint chips on her hair and back from the fence where she was held were photographed and presented to the court.

‘I’ll remain silent’

Forbes told the court that he won't testify but he would bring an eyewitness to testify on his behalf.

The unrepresented Forbes is slated to return to court on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 for continuation of trial.

    A mature male would have told his lady these things are not true and if she believed him or not, they can stay together or go their separate ways no matter how hurtful this is. A mature man would never run someone over with their vehicle, choke and assault them, curse them, even if they thought they were wronged. Now he is going to jail and still have no lady when he gets out. Now you see the difference between a young hot head boy and a mature male?
