Armed Men Rob Anna’s Retreat Apartment

Two armed men invaded an apartment in Anna’s Retreat on Monday evening, threatening the resident and ransacking the residence before taking cash and escaping, the V.I. Police Department reported.

According to a Wednesday news release, at about 9:54 p.m. Monday the 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched officers to a report of a burglary in progress in the area of Anna’s Retreat.

The victim told police he heard a knocking on his door and when he opened it, two unknown men pointing firearms towards him barged into his apartment. The men forced him to lie down on the floor while they searched and ransacked the apartment. They removed money from his wallet and backpack, the victim said, then fled the area in an unknown direction. He ran across to his neighbor for help.
