Stabbing Victim On St. Thomas Won’t Reveal To Police His Attacker

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — Police patrol units were dispatched to the Schneider Regional Medical Center, in reference to a man being stabbed late Saturday night, authorities said.

When police arrived at the hospital early Sunday morning, they met with the victim who refused to give a statement, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

“The victim was stabbed in the area of Wendy’s from an unknown male, who stabbed him in the left leg,” VIPD spokesman Glen Dratte said. “The victim does not have knowledge of who this suspect may be.”

The man sustained a puncture wound to the thigh and received four stitches at SRMC, according to Dratte.

This case is currently under active investigation by the Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB).

Anyone with any information regarding this crime is urged to contact 911, Criminal Investigation Bureau at 340-774-2211 ext. 5579 or Crime Stoppers V.I. at 1-800-222-8477 or 911.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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