STT Man Charged with Assaulting Federal Officers

Amijah Charles, a 36-year-old St. Thomas resident, appeared Monday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ruth Miller for a preliminary and detention hearing after his arrest on Friday by federal agents. Charles is charged with assaulting and threatening federal officers, U.S. Attorney Gretchen C.F. Shappert announced.

The Magistrate Judge released Charles on bond following a preliminary and detention hearing.

According to court records, the federal agents were in the area of Mariendahl conducting official business when Charles approached their vehicle and began pounding on the window. Agents exited the vehicle attempting to place Charles under arrest when he resisted, striking and fighting with the agents.

This case is being investigated by Homeland Security Investigations. It is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Everard E. Potter.
