ARRESTED: Martin Paul Frederick

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A 48-year-old St. Thomas resident was taken into police custody in connection with an assault that happened Monday in Frenchtown, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD).

Police put Martin Paul Frederick under arrest about 4:30 p.m. on Monday after he was identified by the victim and witnesses as the individual that assaulted the victim in French town, VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said.

Frederick failed to post bail set by the court and he was processed and turned over to the correction bureau pending an Advice of Rights hearing, Dratte said.

The VIPD, Criminal Investigations Bureau and Police Commissioner Delroy Richards Sr. are asking the public to come forward with information to help police detectives solve criminal cases in the territory.

If you have information about a crime you can call CIB on St. Thomas at (340) 774-2211 on St. Croix (340) 778-2211 or Crimestoppers VI at 1-800-222-TIPS.

“We can make this Virgin Islands safer for all us, the information you provide may make that difference,” Dratte said.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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