Jamaican wounded in BVI, two women charged


TORTOLA, British Virgin Islands, May 19 2017 – Two women who allegedly wounded a female native of Jamaica at Pearla’s Bar in Baugher’s Bay this month have been arrested and charged with unlawful and malicious wounding.

They are Jelissa Malone from Baugher’s Bay and Melicia Bodkin of Huntums Ghut – both on Tortola.

The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) say the two were offered station bail.

The Jamaican complainant was reportedly at the bar when two women – unknown to her – allegedly attacked and beat her severely.

The wounded woman was treated at Peebles Hospital.

Malone and Bodkin will appear in court on June 23.
