FREDERIKSTED — A St. Croix man talking on his cell phone in his car was robbed at gunpoint of his belongings and his sedan near a soccer field in Upper Bethlehem early Monday morning, authorities said.
The 911 Emergency Call Center received a report of a robbery that took place at the Bethlehem Soccer Stadium, just north of Aureo Diaz Heights at 2:00 a.m. Monday, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
“The victim reported that he was at the soccer field on his phone when he was approached by two males who pointed guns at him and ordered him to leave the area on foot,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said. “He complied and ran away from the area leaving his belongings behind.”
