Police Arrest St. Thomas Man For Slapping, Stabbing Woman

Breaking News / News / March 28, 2015

Fredericks Bedminister of St. Thomas was arrested on Thursday for the slapping and stabbing of a female victim, VIPD Public Information Officer Kevin Jackson has announced.

According to Jackson, officers arrived at the Roy Lester Schneider Regional Hospital in response to a report of an assault victim being treated there.

Upon arriving, the officers met with a female who said she had been stabbed in the hand, in the area of Sanchez Town, St. Thomas. The victim said she was aggressively approached by a black male who was later identified as Bedminister.

She added that Bedminister forcibly picked her up, lifting her into the air despite her pleas not to do so. After putting her down, he then slapped her several times on her back, then pulled out a knife and attempted to slash her abdomen. As she tried to escape him by jumping back and away, Bedminister then stabbed her in the right palm.

Bedminister was later positively identified as the man that had assaulted the victim and was placed under arrest on the charge of 3rd degree assault. No bail was set for the perpetrator, who was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending his Advise of Rights hearing.

I wear many hats, I suppose, but the one which fits me best would be journalism, second to that would be radio personality, thirdly singer/songwriter and down the line. I've been the Editor-In-Chief at my videogames website, Gamesthirst, for over 5 years, writing over 7,000 articles and more than 2 million words. I'm also very passionate about where I live, the United States Virgin Islands, and I'm intent on making it a better place by being resourceful and keeping our leaders honest. VI Consortium was birthed out of said desire, hopefully my efforts bear fruit. Reach me at [email protected]
