Media Specialist Sakeeda Freeman announced on the same day.

The suspect, 29-year-old Shannon Barry, above, was caught on surveillance camera damaging the woman’s vehicle.

Given no bail as per the territory’s domestic violence laws, Mr. Barry was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending his advise-of-rights hearing.

Elsewhere in St. Thomas, a couple was robbed at gunpoint on Friday and had their belongings stolen from them near the Western Cemetery, according to Ms. Freeman, who issued the release on Saturday May 28, 2016.

The male victim said he and a female friend were robbed at gunpoint by an unknown black male, who stole the male victim’s gold chain, valued at $500; $70 cash; and approximately $100 cash from the female victim. The robber then fled the area of the incident on foot.

This case is currently still under active investigation by Criminal Investigation Bureau, said Ms. Freeman.
