According to police record, one man reported that two men held him at gunpoint in the Brandywine Bay area and forced him to give up his money.

Meanwhile, in a separate incident, police said that last Thursday, Brandon Riley of North Road, the Valley, Virgin Gorda, was charged with attempting to unlawfully discharge a firearm, possession of an offensive weapon and common assault.
