ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - The Royal Virgin Islands Police (RVIPF) are on the hunt for a male, who it is alleged attacked a woman with a machete and demanded and threaten her for sexual favours, yesterday August 31, 2017 on a beach on Tortola.

According to the RVIPF, they are currently following several leads into the case of indecent exposure by a male at the Long Bay Beach, on the western end of Tortola yesterday afternoon.

“The perpetrator reportedly was armed with a machete and threatened a female who was at the beach at the time,” explained the RVIPF in a press release.

Police are seeking any information that could help to identify the perpetrator in this matter.

Meanwhile on social media, the issue was raised where an alleged friend of the victim stated what reportedly took place and advised women to be very vigilant of the ‘sexual predator’ who is still on the loose.

More information as they become available.
