St. Thomas Man Wanted In April Fool’s Day Assault Turns Himself In To Police: VIPD
CHARLOTTE AMALIE — A St. Thomas man wanted in an April Fool’s Day domestic violence incident has voluntarily surrendered himself to police without incident, authorities said.
Hasani J. King, of Charlotte Amalie West, was arrested at 1:45 p.m. Saturday and charged with third-degree assault-domestic violence, disturbance of the peace-domestic violence and destruction of property-domestic violence, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.
King turned himself in to police Saturday afternoon when he learned that he was wanted, according to the VIPD. He was arrested then for an assault that occurred at Patriot Manor on April 1.
“Officers received information from an adult female victim, who reported that King, who is her boyfriend, assaulted her during a disagreement,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said.
King, a resident of Michael J. Kirwan Terrace, gave a statement to police and was remanded to the custody of the Bureau of Corrections pending an advice-of-rights hearing.
