CRUZ BAY — A terrified St. John man ducked into a police station to escape a girlfriend who he said was right behind him chasing him with a knife.

The desk sergeant on duty at the Leander Jürgen Command Police Station in St. John had a front row seat as first the man, and then his girlfriend Sally-Ann Medina — brandishing a knife — came into the police station yelling and carrying on, the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) said.

The incident occurred at about 12:05 on Monday and the police officer at the station on Highway 10 said that they saw Medina holding the knife over her head threatening to stab her scared boyfriend.

Medina, 54, was subsequently placed under arrest and charged with third-degree assault-domestic violence, according to the VIPD.

She was transported to the Bureau of Corrections to await an Advice of Rights hearing. No bail was set at the time.

Police said in the arrest log that Medina has no known address.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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