St. Croix Man Charged With Sex Crime Involving Child On Holy Saturday: VIPD
CHRISTIANSTED — A Judith’s Fancy-area man has been charged with a sex act with a child after allegations surface from one year ago, authorities said.
Anthony Cruz, 36, of Estate St. John, was arrested at 3:55 p.m. Saturday and charged with first-degree unlawful sexual contact, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
“The investigation into this matter revealed that Cruz touched a minor female inappropriately, over a year ago,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said. “The exact date was not disclosed. Cruz was interviewed regarding the allegation before being charged.”
Cruz was jailed after failing to post $35,000 bond, pending his Advice of Rights hearing.
