POLICE: Wife Tried To Stab Husband To Death At Floating Bar In St. John
ARRESTED: Sally Ann Medina
CORAL BAY – A man was stabbed multiple times by his wife while they sat at a floating bar in St. John on Monday morning, according to police.
The 911 Emergency Call Center alerted police at 8 a.m. on Monday of an assault that took place near the Aqua Bistro in Coral Bay, police said.
Police arrived on the scene and interviewed the Emergency Medical Service and V.I. Fire Department personnel who were treating the husband for multiple stab wounds about the body and throat.
The husband was described as being “uncooperative” by police as he refused to provide officers with any information regarding the fight that he was involved in.
But V.I. Fire Service personnel informed police that the man told them prior to police arriving that his wife had stabbed him multiple times in an attempt to kill him.
Police were then able to locate and question the man’s wife, Sally-Ann Medina (age unknown) who admitted to the attack, according to police.
Medina was arrested and charged with third-degree assault-domestic violence about 8:30 a.m. Monday.
No bail was set for Medina as per the domestic violence statute.
She was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending an Advice of Rights hearing.
