BVI News understands that the police are seeking the owner of a local construction company who got into a physical fight with an employee he allegedly owes money.
It is understood that on the day the fight took place, the employee – a non-national – went to a bar his boss owns and asked for the money which has been owed for a job done a few months ago.
It’s understood that the boss got angry and asked his employee to leave the bar. However, the man reportedly said he wouldn’t leave without the cash owed to him.
Upon hearing this, the boss allegedly took a chair and threw it at the employee, causing a fight to break out between the two men.
It’s alleged that the two men wrestled and that the employee was choked during the tussle.
It’s unclear whether either of the two men was seriously hurt during the fight. But our news centre was told that the employee reported the matter to the police the same day.
The cops then visited the bar in question but didn’t find him at the establishment.
BVI News also understands that the cops requested to see CCTV footage of the incident but their request was denied by the person who was present at the bar.
The matter is allegedly being investigated.
