Four Women Carjacked Near John F. Kennedy Terrace On Sunday


CHRISTIANSTED – Police are investigating a car jacking that occurred near the John F. Kennedy Terrace in Golden Rock early Sunday morning, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department.

Police were notified by the 911 Emergency Call Center at 4:35 a.m. about a car jacking near John F. Kennedy Terrace and met with four women, one of them who said she was gun-butted to the head during the incident, the VIPD said. The woman declined medical treatment.

According to the women, they were sitting down outside on a sidewalk within the housing community at about 4:10 a.m., after returning from function at a local club, police said.

The women stated they were approached from behind by two masked men with guns, who ordered to the ground, according to police. The men then searched the women, taking their gold chains, mobile phones, cash and the car key of one of the women.

The men then drove off in the vehicle, a grey-colored 2014 Toyota Corolla bearing dealer plates, police said.

The women were unable to provide a description of the suspects to police.

Detectives with the Criminal Investigation Bureau are investigating the car jacking.

The John F. Kennedy Terrace is managed by the Virgin Islands Housing Authority (VIHA). The VIHA is run by Executive Director Robert Graham.
