Three men reportedly robbed an Estate Grove Place homeowner doing repairs on his residence Sunday afternoon, according to the V.I. Police Department.
Officers responding to a 911 call shortly after 4 p.m. met with the victim, who said he had been completing some home repairs outside of his residence when three men approached him. The men, who he described as wearing white T-shirts and jeans, asked for a glass of water. As he began to tell them that he had no water, he was pushed to the ground.
Looking up, he said, he found a gun and pick axe pointed at his head.
The victim told the officers the men entered his residence and removed two air-conditioning units and his mobile phone, then immediately left the area.
It was the second time in a week that the man had been robbed, he told the officers.
The incident is under investigation by Detectives with the Criminal Investigation Bureau.
