FREDERIKSTED — Three men charged in a May carjacking on the East End of St. Croix which culminated in a minor girl being raped have been brought up on additional charges.

The charges stem from a pair of burglaries that took place around the same time, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD).

The three suspects are: Link Baltimore Jr., 18; Hubert Willis “Blackest” Lee Jr., 21; and Youan Rodriquez, 22, the VIPD reported.

According to police, all three men were arrested and charged with third-degree burglary pursuant to a warrant by a Superior Court magistrate on Aug. 25.

First, the three men forced their way through the glass sliding door of a residence in Estate Annaly, the police report said.

Once inside they vandalized the residence and removed several items from the residence before leaving in a pick-up truck belonging to the owners of the  residence.

Then on May 6, the men allegedly forced their way through the front door of Rhythm’s at Rainbow Beach in Frederiksted, removing several items including more than $4,000 in U.S. currency, police said.

Bail was set $100,000 for each of the three suspects.

All three were already detained for previous charges in the East End Road carjacking rape incident that took place on May 6.

ARRESTED ON ADDITIONAL CHARGES: Youan Rodriguez, 22, along with Link Baltimore, 18, and Hubert Willis “Blackest” Lee, Jr., 21, were re-arrested on additional charges related to two May burglaries on Aug. 25.

    What was your purpose for identifying the victim of this horrific crime as a “caucasian girl?” What value doe information about the race of the victim add to this story? None. Whether intentional or not, this reads like you are signaling something to the bigots out there who might be reading your site.
