CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A 33-year-old St. Thomas man was arrested Wednesday night on domestic violence-related charges, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD).

Ricardo Rhymer, 33 of Agnes Fancy, was arrested about 8 p.m. on Wednesday and charged with third-degree assault-domestic violence, the VIPD said.

Rhymer was arrested after police said that he had been positively identified by his former girlfriend as the person who stabbed her in the stomach with a pocket knife, causing her to sustain a laceration.

No bail was set for Rhymer as per the Virgin Islands domestic violence statute.

He was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending an Advice of Rights hearing.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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.
