FREDERIKSTED — A Campo Rico woman called the 911 Emergency Call Center about 4:57 p.m. Thursday to report that she was assaulted.

Detectives from the Domestic Violence Unit were advised of this incident and traveled to Campo Rico.

At the scene, police detectives interviewed a woman who said that Kenny P. Williams Sr., slapped her during an argument.

Police then placed Williams under arrest and charged him with Simple Assault and Battery as an act of Domestic Violence, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

Williams, 44, was given bail in the amount of $1,000.00, by a Superior Court Magistrate, of which he paid 10 percent to secure his release.

Upon posting bail, Williams was released on his own recognizance pending an Advice of Rights hearing.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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