Man Assaulted in Downtown Bar

A man was assaulted in a Kronprindsens Gade bar Wednesday and was treated for injuries at the Schneider Regional Medical Center, the V.I. Police Department reported.

The police said the victim – whose name was not released – was at the Double Play Bar when a Hispanic male grabbed him and struck him numerous times to his head with a beer bottle.

Patrons at the bar were able to pull his assailant off of him, the police said. The victim then ran from the area for his safety but the assailant and the suspect’s girlfriend, who had a knife, followed him. The victim ran into Jala Jala to get away from the suspects.

The victim was treated for injuries behind his ear.
