On July 4, at roughly 12:30 a.m., the 911 Emergency Call Center dispatched officers to Strand Street, Frederiksted, to a reported robbery, according to a V.I. Police Department release.

The suspect reportedly demanded the victims’ belongings, and he and another man also wearing a ski mask fled the area in the victims’ rental vehicle, a white 2019 Kia Sportage.

The first suspect was described as being about 6 feet 2 inches tall, with a very slender build, brown complexion, possibly 20-25 years old, wearing a black long-sleeved sweatshirt, blue jeans and wearing gloves.

The second suspect was described as being 5 feet 11 inches tall, wearing dark clothing.
