A man and woman were arrested Monday in two separate assault cases, both involving knife attacks. Also on Monday a male minor was struck by a bullet in his leg, the V.I. Police Department reported Tuesday.

• Kyshma Clarke, 24, was arrested shortly after 6 p.m. and charged with first-degree assault. Police said she cut another person on the face during an assault in Contant Knolls. Her bail was set at $75,000 and she was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections.

• At about 9:30 p.m., Tishawn Vanholten, 18, was arrested and charged with first-degree assault/domestic violence. Police said Vanholten stabbed his ex-girlfriend’s stepfather and tried to stab his ex-girlfriend with a kitchen knife during a domestic dispute that occurred at a private home in Bonne Esperance.

Bail for Vanholten was denied due to the domestic charge and he was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections.
