ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Police yesterday, January 11, 2022, formally charged Keithley Liburd, 47, of Lower Estate with assaulting a female employee of a bar in Purcell Estate.

According to the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) today, January 12, 2022, the charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm stemmed from an altercation between the two, captured on video, as she was being escorted outside and away from the premises.

Police said the female employee later laid a complaint against Liburd who was, at the time, providing security services for the establishment.

Liburd was granted bail in the sum of $3,000 with a signed surety to appear before the Magistrate’s Court on March 1, 2022.

      @ Citizen

      A woman will always be a woman (physically) regardless of how she acts. You are trying to rationalize the Security Guard's disturbing, abusive, and uncalled for behavior. A Man should never let his hand on a woman unless it is in self defense.

      The Guard is in trouble and here is why:

      1
      Security guard is in a position of power and should never abuse that power. A simple restraint would have been all that was necessary after all he is twice her size and he had backup.

      2
      This was his Co-worker. That is how you deal with a Co-worker?

      3
      His fellow Security guard tried to intervene and stop him but he refused to stop. He clearly has anger management issues and I would be very surprised if this is the first time that he has laid his hands on a woman.

      Finally the only reason why there is little outrage is because the lady is a stripper and from Jamaica but violence against women in any form should never be tolerated in our society. Be that as it may he is innocent until proven guilty so let us see how the case goes.

    Bar Employee. Hilarious. One thing we are good at in this country is giving things alternate names and turning a blind eye to illegal activity.

    Maybe he thought he was doing the right thing... Security guard need to always be mindful that they are not police. No under what circumstance they can put their hands on people. No the Law. Be calm, be professional when things get out of hand call the Police...I am sorry for the guy. Im sure he thought he has the power and was doing the right thing. Free the guy..

    She tried to stab him, so what was he suppose to do let her stab him and get away with it because she is a woman? Then she run to the police after she got her backside stomped. I am not condoning violence but missy got what her hands called for. Be it man or woman, you don’t pull a knife to stab anyone and think it is going to go down easy.

    It would appear that alot of persons witnessed the imcident. How many of them are willing to come forward and tell the court what happened on behalf of the Security Guard? Hiding behind a blogg will not help

    If she had stabbed the security guard and he had died that would have been another person getting killed in a club. Not taking any sides or condoning violence but she was going to stab him and he was defending himself. Don’t be quick to jump in her defense, if she didn’t pull a knife to stab the man she would not have gotten the beat down. Then run off to the police. Did she tell the police she pull a knife and was about to stab the man? Some women is just plain out wicked.

    The news only has one side of the story and like other bloggers have mentioned, she stabbed him hence the altercation. This man was stabbed before in his belly and was hospitalized due to its seriousness. How do you think he will react to this lady pulling the same stunt? I hope he made a report against her so that she can be charged as well.
