St Ursula Holiday lime ends in bloody brawl @ VG bar

A Virgin Gorda man was yesterday, October 23, 2020, taken to the Nurse Iris O'Neal Medical facility after a brutal beating by two men while at a social event for the St Ursula Holiday on Lee Road, Virgin Gorda.

According to eyewitnesses, the complainant was at the bar when he was allegedly maliciously shouldered by a man with whom he had an old grievance.

Sources said the victim allegedly shoved the assailant which resulted in a fight breaking out in the bar resulting in another man stepping in and further added to the severe beating.


No social distancing! Organisers were forced to end the event ahead of the scheduled time and least two persons were arrested and subsequently released pending further police investigation.

Bottles used as weapons


During the fight, whole and broken beer bottles were used as weapons and the victim suffered multiple cuts about his body, the most severe being a wound behind the head.

Organisers were forced to end the event ahead of the scheduled time and least two persons were arrested and subsequently released pending further police investigation.

VINO will bring more information as it becomes available.
