EAST END, Tortola, VI – A robbery in the East End area went horribly wrong earlier this evening, August 4, 2018, when two 'would-be' robbers, were instead nabbed by public spirited persons and relatives of the intended victim, and dealt a sound thrashing.

Reports just reaching our news desk, is that a businessman was allegedly being robbed by two men.

According to reports, public spirited persons in the area observed what was transpiring and quickly took action and immediately caught one of the 'would-be' robbers.

He was inflicted a beating during which he suffered a broken leg.

The other bandit was also reportedly nabbed by public spirited persons and he too was dealt a sound thrashing.

Police and medical services were subsequently called in and it is believed that the 'would-be' robbers were taken to the Peebles Hospital for medical treatment.

A subsequent statement released by the Police confirmed that a gun with ammunition had been recovered following the incident.

    Now that's justice. Caught red handed and they'll be no police advisory asking for information on anyone who might have seen. Every time he look down on that foot it will remind him of the whooping he got doing he robbing. Now everybody got a right to justice and medical care, but as he drive in the ambulance hope the EMT would realize that they could have been carrying their casualty instead and then put more cutass on them

      That one police couldn't stop that 2x4 if he really wanted to.the main problem is they took of the masked and recognize the bandits and hearts got soft.that's why it is good to beat with the mask on.

    Let this be a lesson to all the wanna be little punks out there!.
    Parents take responsibility and educate your children in right and wrong, guidance is lacking in the BVI.
    I witnessed a woman in the supermarket slapping a 3 year old around the head, I was told to mind my own business and found this distressing and sad. This will be passed down to the next generation, just like domestic violence. Communicating with kids and being a role model is absent here in many familie.

      That 3 year old is learning fast. A good beating corrects problems faster than
      “Communicating”. Sign language works best,right upside the head.

        You seem to be living in the past and have probably been raised in one of these abusive families, being the reason you and part of the cycle.
        If you behaved this way in USA, UK and many many more countries you would find yourself arrested for child abuse. Think about that and perhaps google the long term effect of your stone age behavior before embarrassing yourself.
