magistrate's court

Elijah Toulon, a man from the Commonwealth of Dominica, has been ordered to pay just over $6,000 in fines and compensation in the British Virgin Islands Magistrate’s Court for criminal damage and wounding.

The woman wounded is also from Dominica.

She and Toulon were visiting the territory when a heated argument between them turned into a fight.

It is said that a resident got wind of the altercation and reported it through the police emergency line.

In court this month, Magistrate Ayanna Baptiste-DaBreo fined Toulon $2,000 for wounding the female on the arm with a corkscrew. He will spend two months imprisonment if he does not pay that sum.

Toulon was further ordered to pay $3,000 in compensation to the woman or serve six months in prison.

He was also fined $1,000 for damaging a window in relation to the said stabbing incident. The offender was ordered to pay the owner of the window $53.30.

In relation to the incident, Toulon reportedly claimed that the stabbing was an accident.
