Police Investigating Christmas Eve Assault

St. Thomas detectives are investigating a first degree assault and attempted robbery case that occurred on Christmas Eve near the Gladys Abraham School.

The victim of the incident, a 50-year-old man, told police that at approximately 2:30 a.m. on Dec. 24, he was walking on the Lindbergh Bay road when two unknown males approached him, followed him, and demanded money.

One of the perpetrators displayed what looked like a kitchen knife with a seven inch blade and ended up cutting the victim several times on his left forearm and side, according to a V.I. Police Department news release. The perpetrators then ran off.

The victim was treated for cuts to his forearm and ribs and then released from the Roy L. Schneider Regional Medical Center.
