The V.I. Police Department is looking for Henry “Trouble” Richards Jr., who is wanted in connection with a case of second-degree burglary, domestic violence.

According to police, at about 7 p.m. Friday the VIPD Domestic Violence Unit was notified of an assault that occurred at a residence in Estate Dorothea.

At the scene, officers contacted a female, who told them that at about 3 a.m. that day her estranged husband had come to her home and physically assaulted her, striking her several times to the face and body.

She said her minor son called 911 and Richards fled the area, taking her house keys and her cellular phone.
