Man With A History Of Acting Out Arrested on St. Thomas’ UVI Campus

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — The picture of the man who allegedly hit a University of the Virgin Islands security guard with a rock has been released by police.

Glasford Smith, 55, of The Knolls at Contant, was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

Smith is accused of assaulting a UVI campus peace officer while being escorted off the West Charlotte Amalie campus for fighting, according to the VIPD.

VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said that Smith was discharged from the Schneider Regional Medical Center (SRMC) today.

Police said the UVI security guard shot him to stop him from attacking him with a rock.

According to police records, Smith was accused of breaking into his daughter’s apartment in St. Thomas and destroying property in her home on March 20, 2015.

Smith was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending an advice-of-rights hearing. 

This incident remains under active investigation by the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB).
