Fredensborg Man Arrested For Threatening To Kill Woman, Setting Apartment On Fire

SALT RIVER — A St. Croix man was arrested and charged with attempted murder after threatening to kill a woman and then setting her apartment on fire, authorities said.

Jose Miguel Crispin, 53, of Old Fredensborg, was arrested at 6:26 a.m. today and charged with first-degree arson; attempted murder; destruction to property; and disturbance of peace by threats-domestic violence, the Virgin Islands Police Department said.

At around 2:54 a.m., the 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched officers to Concordia East, where an adult female requested assistance with Crispin, her ex-boyfriend, according to the VIPD.

“Crispin allegedly threatened to kill the female, and he lit her apartment on fire,” VIPD spokesman Toby Derima said.

Bail for Crispin was set at $75,000. Unable to post bail, he was remanded to the custody of the V.I. Bureau of Corrections pending an advice-of-rights hearing.

All individuals listed as arrested or charged with a crime in this report are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

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everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling.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