Multiple Robberies in Downtown St. Thomas Under Investigation

Multiple robberies that took place in downtown St. Thomas are currently under investigation, the V.I. Police Department reported Friday.

VIPD reminds the community that reporting incidents to law enforcement authorities as soon as possible is important. Reporting the incidents helps in the investigation process, according to the department.

VIPD Tips on How to Remain Safe:

  • Be aware of your surroundings

  • During a robbery, follow the robber’s directions, remain calm, don’t resist, take mental notes of the robber’s appearance, and immediately call 911 and go to a safe location to report the crime.

  • If you’re in an isolated area, move to an area with people and ask someone to stay with you while you wait for help.

  • If you opt to remain at the crime scene, try not to touch anything.

It is crucial to take these steps for protection. Robberies can happen anywhere, anytime, the department reported.
