Crime Stoppers: A Goal of No Unsolved Crimes

Let’s help make the USVI the safest places in the world to live, work and raise a family. Let’s make sure that no crime goes unsolved. To do that, everyone needs to speak up. If you know something, say something.

St. John: On April 14 at about 4:30 p. m. officers were dispatched to Estate Carolina regarding a burglary. According to the victim, a husband and wife arrived home at about 4:15 to find damage to the bedroom window. Upon leaving the area for their safety, they observed a male running away through the bushes carrying a white bundle. The following items were stolen: a Mac laptop, an Air iPad and a grey iPad case.

St. Thomas: On April 29 a man reported that while dancing with a female at the Blitz nightclub, he felt someone tap him on his back. Upon turning around, he observed a black male with a pocketknife in his hand pointed towards him. The victim stated that after the male swung the knife cutting his shirt, he punched him. After the male swung the knife again, he was stabbed in the leg while the male stated, "I got you," and ran from the area. The victim was treated for a stab wound to his left leg and a scratch to his stomach. If you have information, please let us know.
