Police have confirmed an earlier BVI News Online report that a woman ended up in Peebles Hospital on the weekend after she was assaulted by a man.
“A woman reported to the hospital with injuries to her face, hands, and feet. She reported that she was assaulted by an unknown male with whom she caught a ride,” said Diane Drayton, Information Officer at the Royal Virgin Islands Police Force.
She added that no arrest has been made in relation to the incident, which happened a few hours before daybreak on Saturday, June 25.
BVI News Online sources said the Spanish-speaking woman, who is an exotic dancer, had a dispute with a motorist over money while she was in the motorist’s vehicle.
The motorist allegedly grabbed the woman’s purse and sped away, causing her to be injured in the process. It is said that persons found her lying on the ground outside Deuces Night Club.
