FREDERIKSTED, St Croix, USVI — The [US] Virgin Islands Police Department (VIPD) on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 announced that a three-month-old baby was stabbed multiple times by her own aunt.

According to VIPD Public Information Officer Glen Dratte, Hadiyah Shabazz, age 20, was arrested on information provided by the child’s father.

The father called the 911 emergency call center on Thursday, June 22, 2017 while on his way to the Juan F. Luis Hospital, stating that his child was stabbed. Upon officers arrival at the hospital, they met with both the child’s parents, who told investigators that Ms Shabazz stabbed their three-month-old in the chest and neck areas, according to Mr Dratte.

Ms Shabazz was remanded to the Golden Grove Detention Center pending her advise-of-rights hearing, according to Mr. Dratte.

Mr Dratte said the baby, in stable condition, was being treated at the hospital as of Tuesday.

    JESUS! Help us. I hate to read about things happening to babies. Babies can't fight back. It hurts my heart.

    A poor innocent child been hurt in this manner and the victim seemed sure to be possessed by a demon or what. Her state of mind at that time coud cause her to do such cruelty but I am certainn later she may regret it. I hope it is no family dispute,conflict. This woman needs help with perhaps anger management,psychological observation,etc.While we make our comments let us pray for victim,accuser and families. They need our pray no more that ever.Things like these can even happen in any given situation even to the perfect of all perfect families
