St. Croix Thugs Use ‘Bump And Run’ To Separate Women In Car … Kidnap One And Take Her To Remote Location To Be Brutally Raped

CHRISTIANSTED — On Saturday, May 6, 2017 the 911 Emergency Call Center received a call at approximately 11:36p.m., in reference to a carjacking on the East End Road in St. Croix.

One woman made contact with 911 and stated that she had been traveling with a friend on the East End Road, when a vehicle started ramming them from behind causing them to stop; but the two women were briefly separated in the confusion of the accident and her friend was taken by the carjacking-rapists to a remote location, the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said.

The second woman was eventually able to contact 911 and state that she was sexually assaulted, according to the VIPD.

The woman was then transported to the Juan F. Luis Hospital so doctors could conduct a forensic rape examination of the woman who was sexually assaulted.

The brutal rape took place just as athletes were making final preparations for St. Croix for the Half Ironman competition that was scheduled to take place the next day.

Police waited about three days to release details of Saturday’s carjacking-rape — about one full day after the Half Ironman competition was completed.

To hear how police characterized the incident in an official press release read by VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte, press play below:

The case is currently under investigation by the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB). Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact the  Criminal Investigation Bureau at (340) 778-2211, you can also contact 911, or the anonymous tipline Crimestoppers USVI 1-800-222-8477.

The VIPD said it would like to remind the motoring public that while driving, if the vehicle behind you start hitting your vehicle drive to a highly lit populated area and call 911, or travel to the closest police station.

“Try to get information on the type of vehicle and description of the driver,” the VIPD said.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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 50 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.
