Woman arrested after hitting ex with hammer

BVI News understands that a woman who resides at a Long Bush address was this week arrested and charged after hitting her ex-boyfriend with a hammer.

Reports are that the two ended their relationship months ago but the victim allowed his ex-girlfriend to continue living in a room at his house.

It’s understood that this living arrangement was meant to be temporary but the man had to call the police after multiple attempts to get his ex-girlfriend to leave.

Our news centre was informed that police arrived at the house and both adults were cautioned.

However, as the cops were heading towards the police vehicle, the male victim ran towards them, saying his ex-girlfriend hit him with a hammer as soon as the cops left the house.

The victim reportedly showed a wound on his hand, triggering the cops to return to the house in search of the alleged perpetrator. BVI News understands that the police officers had to kick open the door because the woman locked herself inside.

She was later found hiding in a closet. The hammer she reportedly used was allegedly identified as well.

She was arrested and charged with assault while the victim was taken to hospital for medical attention.

It’s not yet clear whether the matter will proceed to trial.

        Ok sooo he was the one who called the police in the first place. He was the one who ran out to them after being assaulted. But she was the one who was defending herself because he must have done something wrong? Ok. That’s why she was the one who locked herself in the closet when the police reentered the premises. I guess too that’s why she is the one who refusing to leave the man place all up to that point. Oh, because she is defending herself right? Makes a lot of sense…yep

          SHE WAS DEFENDING HERSELF. WHEN HE RAN OFF TO THE POLICE, HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN MAN ENOUGH TO TELL THE POLICE EXACTLY WHAT HE DID TO HER AND WHY SHE HIT HIM. THE WOMAN IS INNOCENT. HE TOOK HER KINDNESS FOR WEAKNESS, HE SET THAT OFF THAT IS WHY HE GOT AS THEY SAY? CLOCKED?

      She is innocent, he is guilty for stressing out the lady.
      Many a times I driving to and from work thinking of a way where I can get the rid of my husband/maggot sometimes the devil would say burn him up in the back of the yard in a human crockpot /a drum,shot him while he sleeping on the bed that I alone paid for, or just poison him, but poisoning him would not be fun because his so called drinking buddies will soon take him off my hands, you see he like to drink but he don’t buy that low life b*****d.

  7. Incompetence says:

    Another display of police incompetence. If a victim asks for the police help, why would the police caution him. If an unwanted person is in your home, they are a trespasser. Why wasnt she removed from the premises and questioned. Why wasnt she asked to contact other family who could help her. Why didnt the police stand by to ensure she removed her items from the home before leaving. When is the incompetence and lack of any sense at all among these low IQ officers going to end. So the police think they did their job by cautioning both persons then leaving? This is seriously stupid. Negligence on their part and they lack training. Who is responsible for their training?

      how can you know what he did or didn’t deserve. If you think what she did was deserved then I can argue that she deserved to be dragged out of HIS home by her legs. But no, he instead controlled himself and went about the matter correctly. I swear you ppl can be so stupid sometimes. No matter how you feel! YOU. CAN’T. USE. THAT. AS. AN. EXCUSE. TO. ATTACK. SOMEONE!

    Am wondering if these people stress out frustrated why all these things happen

  14. Dede says:

    For those of you who think this man was coward for calling the police, what would you be saying if it was the other way around. He did the right thing by involving the authorities. She needs to be charged and send to the same program the men have to attend. No exception.

    If we want this problem fix, we must address them the same. Whatever rules are set must be for other male and female. Can’t chastised the man when he harms the woman but let her go when she is wrong. Both must be punish according to their actions. This type of behaviour has no winners or losers especially if children are involve. Everyone suffers. Hope both are able to get help.

    She need to out his damn light, that’s what she needs to do, end of story.
    Change can only come when a woman gets fed up.
    Ladies we have to protect ourselves because no one is going to protect us.

  16. Wow says:

    The comments just prove that double standards will always exist. If genders were reversed they’d be ready to say lock him up and throw away the key. Nothing warrants violence. Lock her MS up if found guilty.
