CHRISTIANSTED – A man broke into a woman’s apartment at LBJ Gardens in Estate Richmond and tried to rape her early Saturday morning, according to police.

The 911 Emergency Call Center received a report of a break-in and attempted sexual assault at 4:31 a.m. Saturday in the LBJ Gardens housing community, police said.

Police met with a woman who told them that she had been sleeping when she was awakened by loud noises in her apartment.

The woman said she got up out of bed to investigate the sounds when she came into contact with the man who had broken into her apartment. She told police that she recognized him as someone who lives in her neighborhood.

When the man started to fondle her and tried to initiate sex, the woman said that she told the man that she knew who he was and that she was going to call the police.

The man then fled the residence and as he was leaving begged the woman to not contact the authorities.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
