Minor Reports Multiple Rape

V.I. Police Department officers were dispatched to a St. Croix residence at roughly 4:30 p.m. Sunday to investigate a reported rape.

The victim, a minor, in the presence of her father, told the officers that she’d "skipped" school on Feb. 11 and got a ride to her boyfriend’s apartment in Mutual Homes.

The boyfriend took her to the apartment of a friend of his, where he and two others took turns physically assaulting her, she told officers.

Detectives with the Investigation Bureau continue to investigate, the department reported.
