Police Arrest Sixth Person In Connection With Brutal Carjacking Rape of 16-Year-Old Girl On St. Croix’s East End

NEITHER LEAN NOR MEAN: Territorial Police Chief Winsbut McFarlande and Police Commissioner Delroy Richards Sr.

FREDERIKSTED — A St. Croix man was arrested on Thursday and charged in connection with the East End carjacking rape that happened in May.

Cristobal Perez Jr. was arrested on charges that he conspired with the three carjacking rape suspects to burglarize a business in Frederiksted.

The three men, Link Baltimore, 18, Youan Rodriquez, 22, and Hubert Wyliss “Blackest” Lee Jr. 22, were arrested for the brutal kidnapping rape of a 16-year-girl.

According to police sources, Perez was not involved in the multiple rapes, but allegedly linked up with Baltimore, Rodriquez and Wyliss in the burglary.

Perez was identified on surveillance cameras as one of the suspects involved in a Frederiksted burglary and of a break-in that happened at a home in Estate Anally.

Another suspect, Carl Cornelius, 19, has also been charged in connection with one of the two burglaries.

The arrest of Perez brings to six the number of people arrested in connection with the East End carjacking rape.

In May, police said two teenage girls were driving at night when a white, double-cab truck rear-ended them on purpose, causing the two girls to get out of their vehicle.

One of the two girls was taken by the three suspects and repeatedly raped as the men drove around the island

The girl was finally released by the Limetree Bay Terminals facility on St. Croix’s South Shore. The other girl escaped.
