According to acting Chief of Police Jose Garcia, enforcement officers from Planning and Natural Resources observed minors fighting in the area of the gas station adjacent to the junior high school. As the officers approached, several minors ran from the scene but were pursued by the officers and placed under arrest.
A knife was confiscated from one of the minors, and he was charged with possession of a deadly weapon.
Virgin Islands law prohibits the public identification of minors charged with felony crimes.
