Strawberry Sodomist Arrested For Allegedly Choking, Raping Woman

CHRISTIANSTED — A St. Croix man faces stiff charges after being accused of choking, sodomizing and raping a woman last week, authorities said.

Stuart Drew, 41, of Strawberry Hill, was arrested at 2:52 p.m. Thursday and charged with first-degree rape-domestic violence, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

“The victim in this incident, an adult female, reported that she was raped, sodomized, and strangled by Drew on March 29,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said.

Derima was contacted tonight by the Virgin Islands Free Press and said that police could not reveal whether the sodomy was oral or anal “to protect the victim.”

Drew was not offered bail as per the territory’s domestic violence statutes.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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