FREDERIKSTED – A 35-year-old woman was raped by a homeless man as she waited for a bus in broad daylight inside a shanty in Estate Hannah’s Rest on Friday morning.

The 911 Emergency Call Center alerted police at 11:36 a.m. on Saturday that a woman was being treated at the Juan Luis Hospital and Medical Center for injuries she sustained during a rape.

Police met with the woman who told them that she was sitting at the bus stop near Amigo’s Gas Station about 9 a.m. Friday when a “bum/homeless man” approached her.

The man then assaulted her, pinned her down and raped her at the bus stop, the woman told police.

The woman said that she was familiar with the man who attacked her and provided the officers with information as to where he might be found.

Police said the rape incident is under active investigation.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 40 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests.
