One Domestic Violence Suspect Arrested, Another Still at Large

Domestic violence suspect Sovive Mistick Clarke was arrested by V.I. Police Department at about 11 a.m. Tuesday, one day after police issued a wanted poster and asked the community’s assistance in locating him, the department reported Wednesday.

A second suspect, Karl Christian-Browne, who is wanted in an unrelated domestic-violence case, is still at large.

Clarke was arrested after appearing in court regarding a restraining order brought against him. Superior Court marshals recognized Clarke and held him until he could be turned over to police.

Wanted posters were issued for Clarke and Christian-Browne on Monday. Detectives said they have been searching for the men for several weeks.
